We developed Hg(OTf)2-catalyzed Friedel-Crafts-like cycloisomerization of 7-arylhepta-l,3-dienes to give propenylsubstituted tetrahydronaphthalenes in excellent catalytic turnover under very mild conditions. 1,3-Dienyl sulfonamides and 1,3-dienyl alcohols were also efficiently cyclized to afford heterocyclic compounds.
