A series of novel chiral hybrid compounds between benzofuran and bicyclic cyclopentenone and also benzothiophene and bicyclic cyclopentenone have been designed and synthesized. Chiral enynes derived from enantiomerically enriched homoallyl and homopropargyl alcohols were converted into bicyclic cyclopentenone structures by intramolecular Pauson-Khand reactions. This strategy provides a facile access to various bicyclic cyclopentenones substituted with benzofuran or benzothiophene ring systems in good yields. In addition to the experimental work, the ground state geometries of the hybrid compounds were optimized using Density Functional Theory applications at the B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level in order to obtain information about the 3D geometries and electronic structure.
