– The cationic gold(I)-catalyzed 10-endo-dig-selective cycloisomerization of N-(2-anilinobenzyl)propargylamine derivatives was developed. The reaction proceeded smoothly under mild conditions to give dibenzodiazecines. The catalytic construction of an entropically and enthalpically disfavored ten-membered ring was achieved by using a highly nucleophilic 3,5-dimethoxyanilino group as a reaction site.
