    One rhodium(I) complex catalyzes two processes in an overall Pauson-Khand-type reaction of enynes such as 1 with formaldehyde in an aqueous medium to give bicyclic cyclopentenones such as 2 in excellent yields. The use of a water-soluble phosphane ligand in conjunction with a hydrophobic phosphane ligand in the presence of a surfactant promotes the decarbonylation of formaldehyde in the aqueous phase and the carbonylation of enynes in the micellar phase

    The rhodium(I)-catalyzed reaction of alkynes with formaldehyde proceeds via the double incorporation of a carbonyl moiety from formaldehyde, resulting in a CO gas-free cyclohydrocarbonylation leading to α,β-butenolides

    We describe the full details of multicomponent coupling reactions in acid-mediated synthesis of fully substituted 1,2,3-triazoles syntheses, and their applications to bioactive molecule synthesis. For substitution with wide range of nucleophiles, selection of acids or activating reagents was important, and various types of multicomponent coupling reactions were demonstrated, allowing functionalization with alcohols, amines, thiol, azide, and carbon nucleophiles. Four-component couplings including double triazolations were also tested. The efficiency of this method was demonstrated by the synthesis of serine hydrolase inhibitor and its novel substituted derivatives
