The synthesis of a new type of C(2)-symmetric chiral diene ligands with a nonbridged bicyclic [3.3.0] backbone was successfully introduced. Using highly efficient lipase-catalyzed transesterification and Suzuki-coupling strategies, a broad family of enantiopure 3,6-disubstituted bicyclo[3.3.0] dienes with different electronic and steric properties could be… (More)
The creation of three consecutive chiral carbon centers in one step is achieved using Cu-catalyzed asymmetric silylative cyclization of cyclohexadienone-tethered allenes. Through regioselective β-silylation of the allene and subsequent enantioselective 1,4-addition to cyclohexadienone, this tandem reaction could afford cis-hydrobenzofuran, cis-hydroindole,… (More)
Cu-catalyzed borylative cyclization of allene cyclohexanediones has been described through a tandem β-borylation and intramolecular allylic addition process, affording borylated cis-decalinols with excellent yields and diastereoselectivities. A good enantioselectivity is also achieved in the asymmetric version. The hemiboronate group in the cyclization… (More)
Copper-catalyzed asymmetric allylation of chiral N-tert-butanesulfinyl imines has been described. Dual stereocontrol, through the combination of a chiral auxiliary and a chiral copper complex, has played an important role in achieving the nearly perfect diastereoselectivities (all dr > 99 : 1), especially for ketimine substrates.
The first Cu-catalyzed asymmetric borylative cyclization of cyclohexadienone-containing 1,6-enynes is achieved through a tandem process: selective β-borylation of propargylic ether and subsequent conjugate addition to cyclohexadienone. The reaction proceeds with excellent regioselectivity and enantioselectivity to afford an optically pure… (More)
Two tunable arylative cyclizations of cyclohexadienone-containing 1,6-enynes are reported via rhodium(III)-catalyzed C-H activation of O-substituted N-hydroxybenzamides. The use of different O substituents, i.e. O-Piv and O-Me, on the directing group allows the formation of either tetracyclic isoquinolones through an Ⓝ-Michael addition process or… (More)
The Cu-catalyzed asymmetric conjugate hydroboration reaction of β-substituted α-dehydroamino acid derivatives has been established, affording enantioenriched syn- and anti-β-boronate-α-amino acid derivatives with excellent combined yields (83-99%, dr ≈ 1:1) and excellent enantioselectivities (92-98% ee). The hydroboration products were expediently converted… (More)
A novel terminal olefin-oxazoline ligand was introduced into rhodium-catalyzed asymmetric conjugate addition of arylboronic acids to enones and gave excellent enantioselectivities. The two phenyls proved better than one or three in ligand evaluations.
A new imine reductase from Stackebrandtia nassauensis (SnIR) was identified, which displayed over 25- to 1400-fold greater catalytic efficiency for 1-methyl-3,4-dihydroisoquinoline (1-Me DHIQ) compared to other imine reductases reported. Subsequently, an efficient SnIR-catalyzed process was developed by simply optimizing the amount of cosolvent, and up to… (More)
An efficient rhodium/diene-catalyzed asymmetric addition of arylboronic acids to α,β-unsaturated γ-lactams has been developed. The power of this methodology is further demonstrated by the concise synthesis of (R)-baclofen and (R)-rolipram.
