An annulation reaction is described to access a range of polycyclic and highly oxygenated carbocycles. First developed in an approach to the synthesis of ryanodol, metallacycle-mediated annulative diketone–alkyne coupling defines a framework for realization of new retrosynthetic relationships for complex molecule synthesis. In addition to demonstrating this reaction in the context of forging distinct carbocyclic systems, including those featuring a seven-membered ring, the choice of quenching reagent leads to unique reaction outcomes.
