A novel palladium(0)-catalyzed dearomative spirocyclization reaction of bromophenols has been developed for building a series of spirocyclic architectures containing a quaternary carbon center via[2+2+1] strategy. This method employs inexpensive bromophenols and easily accessible alkynes. It exhibits a broad substrate scope in good yields. Notably, this transformation can be realized with high regioselectivity (>19:1 rr) when using unsymmetrical alkynes, which greatly expands the research scope of phenol dearomatization.

Key words: transition-metal-catalyzed, dearomatization, spirocyclization, bromophenols
