Alkynyl Cinchona Catalysts affect Enantioselective Trifluoromethylation for Efavirenz under Metal-Free Conditions.


Efavirenz is manufactured worldwide, and its asymmetric synthesis requires a complex organometallic approach, while an organocatalytic approach is far less efficient. The first highly enantioselective approach is disclosed for the synthesis of Efavirenz under nonmetal organocatalysis with up to 93% ee for the Merck intermediate and 91% ee for the Lonsa… (More)
