An environmentally benign surfactant (TPGS-750-M), a diester composed of racemic α-tocopherol, MPEG-750, and succinic acid, has been designed and readily prepared as an effective nanomicelle-forming species for general use in metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions in water. Several "name" reactions, including Heck, Suzuki-Miyaura, Sonogashira, and… (More)
A full account of a recently discovered gold(I)-catalyzed reaction, a cycloaddition of carbonyl compounds to enynes yielding 2-oxabicyclo[3.1.0]hexanes with four stereogenic centers, is presented. The reaction proceeds with very high diastereoselectivity. The scope of the reaction has been investigated. In addition, experiments and DFT calculations… (More)
Allylic phenyl ethers serve as electrophiles toward Pd(0) en route to a variety of allylic silanes. The reactions can be run at room temperature in water as the only medium using micellar catalysis.
Using the newly introduced designer surfactant polyethyleneglycol ubiquinol sebacate (PQS), as the platform for micellar catalysis, nonracemic BINAP has been covalently attached and rhodium(I) inserted to form PQS-BINAP-Rh. This species, the first example of a nonracemically-ligated transition metal catalyst-tethered amphiphile, can be utilized for… (More)
Described herein are newly developed, straightforward entries to polyethyleneglycol ubiquinol succinate (PQS, n = 2), a designer surfactant that serves as precursor to micelle-forming, covalently bound catalysts for a variety of transformations in water with in-flask catalyst recycling.
The first study on a general technology for arriving at valued nonracemic allylic alcohols using asymmetric ligand-accelerated catalysis by copper hydride is described.
New technology for palladium-catalyzed cross-couplings between B2pin2 and aryl bromides leading to arylboronates is described. Micellar catalysis serves to enable borylations to take place in water as the only medium at ambient temperatures.
