Asymmetric Glyoxylate-Ene Reactions Catalyzed by Chiral Pd(II) Complexes in the Ionic Liquid [bmim][PF6]


The room temperature ionic liquid [bmim][PF6] was employed as the reaction medium in the asymmetric glyoxylate-ene reaction of α-methyl styrene (4a) with ethyl glyoxylate using chiral palladium(II) complexes as the catalysts. [Pd(S-BINAP)(3,5-CF3PhCN)2](SbF6)2 (1b) showed the highest catalytic activity. Under the reaction conditions of 40 C, 0.5 h, and 1b… (More)
