There is much interest in designing molecular sized containers that influence and facilitate chemical reactions within their nanocavities. On top of the advantages of improved yield and selectivity, the studies of reactions in confinement also give important clues that extend our basic understanding of chemical processes. We report here, the synthesis and(More)
Alkene difunctionalization reactions are important in organic synthesis. We have recently shown that copper(II) complexes can promote and catalyze intramolecular alkene aminooxygenation, carboamination, and diamination reactions. In this contribution, we report a combined experimental and theoretical examination of the mechanism of the copper(II)-promoted(More)
A new protocol for diastereoselective copper-catalyzed intra-molecular alkene aminooxygenation, which provides methyleneoxy-functionalized disubstituted pyrrolidines and five-membered cyclic ureas from the corresponding γ-alkenyl sulfonamides and N-allylureas, is reported. In addition, some success was achieved in enantioselective desymmetrizations(More)
The diastereoselectivity of the copper-promoted intramolecular aminooxygenation of various alkene substrates was investigated. Alpha-substituted 4-pentenyl sulfonamides favor the formation of 2,5-cis-pyrrolidines (dr >20:1) giving excellent yields which range from 76-97% while gamma-substituted substrates favor the 2,3-trans pyrrolidine adducts with(More)
The catalytic asymmetric aminooxygenation of alkenes provides an efficient and straightforward approach to prepare chiral vicinal amino alcohols. We have reported a copper(II)-catalyzed enantioselective intramolecular alkene aminooxygenation, using (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-yl)oxyl (TEMPO) as the oxygen source, which results in the synthesis of chiral(More)
