The rhodium-catalyzed Pauson - Khand reaction (PKR) of cyclohexa-l,3-dienes containing two methylene carbons and an alkyne in a chain produced regular PKR products. Cyclohexadienynes bearing three methylene units and a aromatic ring at the alkyne afforded regular PKR products and angularly fused tricyclic compounds, which were derived from diene migration followed by the PKR process.
