X-ray crystal structures of two [(diphosphine)Au2 Cl2 ] complexes (in which diphosphine=P-Phos and xylyl-P-Phos; P-Phos=[2,2',6,6'-Tetramethoxy-4,4'-bis(diphenylphosphino)-3,3'-bipyridine]) were determined and compared to the reported structures of similar atropisomeric gold complexes. Correlations between the Au⋅⋅⋅Au distances and torsional angles for the(More)
Presently, nonmetal-based phase-transfer catalysts (PTCs) and organocatalysts have been deployed to great effect for these reactions. Corey et al. first reported the conjugate addition of 1 to acrylates and enones with notable enantioselectivity (> 90% ee) in the presence of an Nalkylated cinchonidine salt. Subsequently, the scope of the reaction was(More)
The electrochemical cathodic reduction of cyclic imides (maleimides) to succinimides can be achieved chemoselectively in the presence of alkene, alkyne, and benzyl groups. The efficiency of the system was demonstrated by using a 3D electrode in a continuous flow reactor. The reduction of 3,4-dimethylmaleimides to the corresponding succinimides proceeds with(More)
