A series of tunable and regenerable biomimetic hydrogen sources, 4,5-dihydropyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxalines, have been synthesized and applied in biomimetic asymmetric hydrogenation of 3-aryl-2H-benzo[b][1,4]oxazines and 1-alkyl-3-aryl-quinoxalin-2(1H)-ones, providing the chiral amines with up to 92% and 89% ee, respectively.
The morphological control of polymer micellar aggregates is an important issue in applications such as nanomedicine and material science. Stimuli responsive soft materials have attracted significant attention for their well-controlled morphologies. However, despite extensive studies, it is still a challenge to prepare nanoscale assemblies with responsive(More)
An enantioselective hydrogenation of fluorinated hydrazones has been achieved by employing [Pd(R)-DTBM-SegPhos(OCOCF3)2] as the catalyst, providing a general and convenient method toward chiral fluorinated hydrazines. A broad substrate scope including β-aryl-, γ-aryl-, and alkyl-chain-substituted hydrazones worked efficiently in high yields and up to 94% of(More)
An efficient and transition-metal-free approach was developed to access a series of fluorinated heteroaromatics in moderate to excellent yields. This one-pot procedure features a triple-relay transformation of rapid dearomatization, fluorination, and rearomatization processes, which represents a conceptually novel strategy of combining partial hydrogenation(More)
A highly enantioselective synthesis of chiral fluorinated propargylamines was developed through phosphoric acid and ruthenium-catalyzed chemoselective biomimetic hydrogenation of the carbon-nitrogen double bond of fluorinated alkynyl ketimines in the presence of a carbon-carbon triple bond. This reaction features high chemoselectivity and slow background(More)
An efficient and facile route to chiral tetrahydroquinolines with three contiguous stereogenic centers via a dynamic kinetic resolution process has been successfully developed by using chiral phosphoric acid as catalyst and Hantzsch ester as the hydrogen source with up to 89% ee.
