Enantioselective arylation of secondary β-C(sp(3))-H bonds of 8-aminoquinoline amides was realized with a palladium catalyst. Chiral phosphoric amides and acids were used for the first time to control the stereoselectivity at the C-H bond cleavage step in the C-H activation reactions.
A series of bidentate monoanionic nitrogen ligands were designed and applied in the Pd-catalyzed oxidative Heck reaction of arenes with alkenes. Significant ligand-accelerated effects were observed, and direct C-H functionalized products were formed in high yields with meta-selectivity.
A palladium-catalyzed enantioselective C-H arylation of N-(o-bromoaryl)-diarylphosphinic amides is described for the synthesis of phosphorus compounds bearing a P-stereogenic center. The method provides good enantioselectivities and high yields. The products were readily transformed into P-chiral biphenyl monophosphine ligands.
