Synthesis of two kinds of new bis(isoxazoline) ligand, achiral 2,2'bis(isoxazolinyl)propane and (R)-2,2'-bis(isoxazolinyl)-1,1'-binaphthyl bearing an axial chirality is described. Both of the bis(isoxazoline) ligands accelerated the Pd(II)-catalyzed Wacker-type cyclization of alkenyl alcohol. The isoxazoline ligands were found to be essential to promote the cyclization.
