trans-3-Styryl-4-hydrazinocyclopentenes have been synthesized via palladium-catalyzed desymmetrization of diazanorbornenes with (Z)-β-bromostyrenes. The reaction also works well with (Z)-β-bromostyrenes generated in situ from 2,3-dibromohydrocinnamic acids. The synthesized hydrazinocyclopentenes provide an easy route towards synthetic intermediates of many scaffolds of biological potential.
