[formula: see text] Simple dialkyl malonate esters, for example diethyl malonate, exhibit relatively limited scope as carbon nucleophiles in the Mitsunobu dehydrative alkylation reaction. In contrast, bis(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl) malonate readily undergoes dehydrative alkylation with primary alcohols, and using only a slight excess of malonate gives(More)
Control of the conformational equilibria of 1,5-diaza-cis-decalins, a new class of chiral diamine ligands, has been investigated. Chiral 2,6- and 3,7-substituted derivatives of 1,5-diaza-cis-decalins were designed to stabilize the conformational form needed to chelate a lithium. These derivatives were synthesized in optically pure form starting from(More)
