A method for the regioselective synthesis of a wide range of dihydrothiophenes was developed from the rhodium-catalyzed transannulation of 1,2,3-thiadiazoles with aliphatic, aromatic, and heteroaromatic alkenes. Tandem rhodium-catalyzed transannulation of 1,2,3-thiadiazoles with alkenes followed by 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone (DDQ) oxidation was also demonstrated for the one-pot regioselective synthesis of various thiophenes. Advantages of the present method include a broad substrate scope, wide functional group compatibility, and high regioselectivity.
