In this paper, a novel Rh­(I)-catalyzed Pauson–Khand-type [3 + 2 + 1] cycloaddition reaction of ene-vinylidenecyclopropanes (Ene-VDCPs) and carbon monoxide (CO) has been developed to furnish a series of aza- and oxa-bicyclic compounds in moderate to good yields in a highly regio- and diastereoselective manner, which provides an alternative and efficient synthetic approach for the access of bicyclic cyclohexanone frameworks. The substrate scope and limitations and a plausible mechanism are discussed.
