Chiral intermediates constitute a significant part of the fine chemicals market, which is strongly influenced by trends in the pharmaceutical industries, where approximately 70% of pharmaceuticals are expected to be enantiomerically pure in the next century as compared to 25% today. The main technologies by which enantiomerically pure ingredients are(More)
Catalytic decomposition of diazoacetylacetone, diazoacetoacetic, diazomalonic, and diazoacetic esters using dirhodium tetraacetate in the presence of isothiazol-3(2H)-one 1,1-dioxides and a number of N-(arenesulfonyl)carboxamides in solutions of methylene chloride or dichloroethane gives rise to O-alkylation of the imidic carbonyl groups by(More)
Stabilization of imidic carbonyl ylides derived from alpha-diazocarbonyl compounds and succinimide occurs in two different ways: ylides from diazoesters experience a [1,4]-hydrogen shift to produce the corresponding O-alkylimidates while their analogues with at least one acyl group undergo [1,5]electrocyclization yielding 1,3-dioxoles.
