Copper-catalyzed borylation of β-trifluoromethyl-α,β-unsaturated ketones was efficiently achieved by means of bis(pinacolato)diboron (B2pin2), affording the enantioenriched products in good yields with high enantioselectivities. CuI and (R,S)-Josiphos consist of the most efficient catalyst system under mild conditions. In the absence of the chiral ligand,(More)
A copper(I)-catalyzed, (diacetoxyiodo)benzene [PhI(OAc)2]-mediated ring-expansion/thiolactonization of a-oxo ketene dithioacetals was efficiently realized via azidation of the internal olefinic C@H bond with sodium azide under mild conditions. Sequential amination, ring-expansion rearrangement, and thiolactonization occurred to form aminated thiolactones in(More)
Rhodium(iii)-catalyzed conjugate addition of aromatic and olefinic C-H bonds to CF3-substituted unsaturated ketones was efficiently achieved. Both arene and olefin substrates bearing a chelate assisted-directing group were coupled with a variety of β-trifluoromethyl-α,β-unsaturated ketones with excellent atom-economy, high yields, and broad substrate scopes.
Asymmetric hydrogenation plays an important role in organic synthesis, but that of the challenging substrates such as N-unprotected imines, enamines, and N-heteroaromatic compounds (1H-indoles, 1H-pyrroles, pyridines, quinolines, and quinoxalines) has only received increased attention in the past three years. Considering the interaction modes of a Brønsted(More)
