Manganese- and cobalt-catalyzed aminocyclization reactions of unsaturated hydrazones are reported. Whereas manganese catalysis provides access to pyrazoline and tetrahydropyridazine alcohols, cobalt catalysis for the first time paves the way for the selective formation of pyrazoline aldehydes. Furthermore, various functional groups including hydroperoxide, thiol derivatives, iodide, and bicyclopentane may be introduced via manganese-catalyzed ring-forming aminofunctionalization. A progesterone receptor antagonist was prepared using the aminocyclization protocol.
