Reaction information

*#Reaction file  
*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure  n-BuLi (0.60 mL of a 2.5 M solution in hexanes, 1.5 mmol) was added dropwise to a solution of Cp2ZrCl2 (219 mg, 0.80 mmol) in dry THF (5.0 mL) at −78 °C. Enediyne 78 (194 mg, 0.80 mmol) in dry THF (3.0 mL) was added dropwise to the reaction mixture at −78 °C.  The reaction mixture was warmed to room temperature over 1 h and left stirring at room temperature for 4 h.  HCl (2.0 mL of a 2 M solution in Et2O) was added dropwise to the reaction mixture and left stirring overnight.  The reaction mixture was poured into water (100 mL) and extracted with ether (2 × 75 mL).  The organic extracts were combined, washed sequentially with water (75 mL) and sat. aq. NaHCO3 solution (75 mL), dried (MgSO4), filtered and the solvent removed in vacuo to give the crude product as an orange oil (199 mg). Purification by column chromatography (SiO2, hexane) gave the title compound as an orange oil (39.0 mg, 20%).
*Yield (%)  20
*Type of Yield Isolated product yield
