Efficient cyclization routes to substituted heterocyclic compounds mediated by transition-metal catalysts
Abstract: Cyclizations induced by transition metals such as palladium, platinum, gold, and ruthenium can produce functionalized heterocycles such as 3-(arylmethylene)isoindolones, γ-lactones, and unsaturated δ-lactones.
