Precious Metal Time
What do you want to bet that Huw Davies and co-workers were partly interested in making dihydrofurans here, and mostly interested in having a synthetic sequence that used rhodium, silver, and then gold? Not that I blame them - personally, I'd have gone ahead and done a palladium coupling, a copper-catalyzed Ullmann of some sort, and then found something to reduce with platinum oxide. Go for the record! What is the record, I wonder?
