Abstract: The first general synthesis of compounds of the tetravinylethylene (TVE) family is reported. Ramirez-type dibromo-olefination of readily accessible penta-1,4-dien-3-ones generates 3,3-dibromo[3]dendralenes, which undergo twofold Negishi, Suzuki-Miyaura or Mizoroki-Heck reactions with a wide variety of olefinic coupling partners. This route delivers a broad range of unsymmetrically substituted tetravinylethylenes with up to three different alkenyl substituents attached to the central C=C bond. The extensive scope of the approach is demonstrated by the preparation of the first higher order oligo-alkenic through-conjugated/cross-conjugated hybrid compounds. An unsymmetrically substituted TVE is shown to undergo a domino electrocyclization-cycloaddition with high site-selectivity and diastereoselectivity, thereby demonstrating the substantial synthetic potential of substituted TVEs for controlled, rapid structural complexity generation.
