All Welcome

Reductive activation of simple cobalt(II) complexes leads to highly reactive catalyst systems for various carbon-carbon bond forming processes. The catalysts can be used to generate various cyclical systems from four-membered rings up to eight-membered rings in unprecedented intermolecular transformations. Also, acyclic 1,4-dienes can be generated from simple starting materials. The high functional group tolerance is remarkable and opens the way to a wide variety of follow-up reactions. Mechanistic insights will elucidate the reasons which permit the cobalt catalysts to be tuned, which leads to the very destinct observed reaction pathways.
