The insertion of an aryne into a C-S bond can suppress the addn. of an S nucleophile to the aryne in the presence of palladium. Catalyzed by Pd(OAc)2, a wide range of α-carbamoyl ketene dithioacetals readily react with arynes to selectively afford functionalized 2-quinolinones in high yields under neutral reaction conditions by a C-S activation/aryne insertion/intramol. coupling sequence. The attractive feature of the new strategy also lies in the versatile transformations of the alkythio-substituted quinolinone products. [on SciFinder(R)]
