Dynamic resolution has been studied as a method for the asymmetric synthesis of 2-substituted pyrrolidines. Highly enantioselective electrophilic substitutions of racemic 2-lithiopyrrolidines in the presence of a chiral ligand have been achieved. The organolithium compounds were prepared by tin-lithium exchange from the corresponding tributylstannanes and(More)
Kinetics experiments have been used to establish the free energy, enthalpy, and entropy of activation for the enantiomerization of three structural classes of 2-lithiopyrrolidines. We find that alpha-aminoorganolithiums chelated by a N-methoxyethyl or N-Boc group have a barrier to enantiomerization (DeltaG++) 2-3 kcal/mol lower than that of unstabilized(More)
