Abstract

A simple and robust AgI/KOAc system was developed for the cyclization of propargyl alcohols and carbon dioxide under mild conditions, and was identified to have excellent activities for numerous substrates, especially sterically hindered terminal alkynes and internal alkynes. Notably, the Ag loading involved was an unprecedentedly low level of 0.05 mol%.
