Enantioselective N-H insertion reaction of α-aryl α-diazoketones: an efficient route to chiral α-aminoketones.
A highly enantioselective NH insertion reaction of α-diazoketones was developed by using cooperative catalysis by dirhodium(II) carboxylates and chiral spiro phosphoric acids. The insertion reactionExpand
