Cross-conjugated trienes obtained via a Rh(I)-catalyzed allenic Alder-ene reaction represent a new class of compounds. The synthesis of heterocyclic compounds containing multiple fused rings was accomplished via sequential Diels-Alder reactions of amino-acid derived cross-conjugated trienes. Newly synthesized imino-oxazolidinone fused trienes were used to control the stereoselectivity in an intermolecular cycloaddition sequence. Additionally, intramolecular cycloaddition of ester tethered tetraene stereoselectively afforded fused tricyclic pyridino-pyranone which was effectively utilized in subsequent cycloaddition reactions.
