Ruthenium-catalyzed [2+2] cycloadditions of 2,3-disubstituted norbornadienes and 2-substituted norbornadienes with an alkyne were found to be highly chemo- and stereoselective with moderate level of regioselectivities and only small rate differences were observed with different substituents on the norbornadiene. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
