Asymmetric catalysis of carbonyl-ene and aldol reactions with fluoral by chiral binaphthol-derived titanium complex
Abstract The chiral titanium complex-catalyzed ene-type reaction and the Mukaiyama aldol reaction with fluoral are shown to serve as an efficient route to the enantioselective and diastercoselectiveExpand

Catalytic cyanomethylation of carbonyl compounds and imines with highly basic phosphine
Abstract A highly basic phosphine, tris(2,4,6-trimethoxy phenyl)phosphine (TTMPP), catalyzes cyanomethylation using trimethylsilylacetonitrile (TMSCH 2 CN) to give the corresponding products in goodExpand

Synthesis of P-chirogenic diphosphine oxides and their use in catalytic asymmetric Diels–Alder reaction
Abstract New P-chirogenic phosphine oxides, ( R , R )-1,2-bis(alkylmethylphosphinyl)ethanes (alkyl=1-adamantyl, tert -butyl) and ( S , S )-1,1-bis( tert -butylmethylphosphinyl)methane have beenExpand

Tandem and two-directional asymmetric catalysis of the Mukaiyama aldol reaction
Abstract Upon addition of an excess amount of an aldehyde 3, the Mukaiyama aldol reaction of a silyl enol ether 2 proceeds in tandem and two-directional fashion by the asymmetric catalysis of aExpand

TBD-Catalyzed Trifluoromethylation of Carbonyl Compounds with (Trifluoromethyl)trimethylsilane
Abstract Trifluoromethylation of carbonyl compounds using (trifluoromethyl) trimethylsilane catalyzed by 1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4,4,0]dec-5-ene (TBD) afforded the corresponding α-trifluoromethylExpand
