The [2+2+1]-cycloaddition of an alkyne, an alkene and carbon monoxide known as Pauson-Khand reaction is a powerful way to install two new functional groups and a cycle into a molecule. The great potential of this reaction has thus far been underestimated in the synthesis of pharmacologically active compounds.
