The formal[6+2] cycloaddition reaction of α'-methylene-2-cyclopentenones and 2-alkylidene-1,3-indanediones was developed under the catalysis of tricyclohexyl phosphine, proceeding in a remote γ-regioselective Rauhut-Currier-type reaction followed by a β'-regioselective intramolecular Michael addition process. An array of fused bicyclic frameworks incorperating a spiro-1,3-indanedione motif were produced in fair to good yields of 48%~76% with excellent diastereoseletivity (generally>19:1 dr). This protocol expands the reaction mode of traditional Rauhut-Currier reaction, which might find further application in organic synthesis.

Key words: phosphine catalysis, α'-methylene-2-cyclopentenone, Rauhut-Currier reaction, [6+2]cycloaddition
