Abstract: Microwave assisted CpCo(CO)2 catalyzed cross-cyclotrimerizations of 1,7,9,15-hexadecatetrayne with two different nitriles to give unsymmetrically substituted bis(tetrahydroisoquinolines) was studied. The reaction proceeded with a range of alkyl and aryl nitriles with reasonable isolated yields.
Keywords: cyclotrimerization; cobalt; microwave heating; pyridines
