The creation of quaternary stereogenic centers with high enantioselectivity is challenging, in part, because of the high steric repulsion between the substituents on the carbon center that is generated during construction. Nevertheless, significant progress has been made towards this goal in recent years, even in conformationally flexible acyclic systems.… (More)
The addition of an aryllithium reagent to a secondary boronic ester leads to an intermediate boron-ate complex that behaves as a chiral nucleophile, reacting with a broad range of electrophiles with inversion of stereochemistry. Depending on the electrophile, the C-B bond can be converted into C-I, C-Br, C-Cl, C-N, C-O, and C-C, all with very high levels of… (More)
(-)-Sparteine induced lithiation of primary 2,4,6-triisopropylbenzoates and subsequent homologation of boronic esters is reported. A comparative study with lithiated N,N-diisopropylcarbamates has demonstrated the superiority of the hindered benzoate.
