This work describes two distinct annulations between ynamides and 1,2-benzisoxazoles with chemoselectivity controlled by ligands. With IPrAuCl/AgNTf2, aryl-substituted ynamides undergo [5+2]-annulation reactions, whereas P(t-Bu)2(o-biphenyl)AuCl/AgNTf2 alters the chemoselectivity of the same ynamides to implement [5+1]-annulation reactions. 13C-Labeling experiments confirm that a 1,2-sulfonamide shift is involved in the [5+1]-annulation process. A plausible mechanism is postulated to rationalize the mechanisms of the two annulations.
