Atropisomeric biaryl aldehydes undergo diastereoselective condensation with (-)-ephedrine and with a proline-derived diamine, with selectivity highly dependent on solvent, temperature and reaction conditions. Levels of thermodynamic control up to 5:1 may be obtained by heating the diamine with the aldehyde in a sealed tube. Alternatively,(More)
The orientation of Ar-C, Ar-N and Ar-O bonds in biaryls, N,N'-diarylureas and diaryl ethers (whose conformers are distinguishable by NMR) may be controlled with a selectivity up to >95 : 5 by an adjacent stereogenic centre; the selectivity may be greater when a second stereogenic axis is inserted between the controlling centre and the slowly rotating bond.
