Asymmetric epoxidation of cis-alkenes mediated by iminium salts: highly enantioselective synthesis of levcromakalim.

[reaction: see text] A range of cis-substituted olefins has been epoxidized with a new dihydroisoquinolinium salt catalyst, using tetraphenylphosphonium monoperoxysulfate as the stoichiometric

Asymmetric epoxidation of olefins catalyzed by chiral iminium salts generated in situ from amines and aldehydes.

A new approach for catalytic asymmetric epoxidation of olefins was developed that utilized chiral iminium salts, generated in situ from chiral amines and aldehydes, as catalysts, which obviates the difficulties inherent in the preparation and isolation of unstable exocyclic imInium salts.

Enantioselective epoxidation of alkenes catalyzed by 2-fluoro-N-carbethoxytropinone and related tropinone derivatives.

Several alpha-substituted N-carbethoxytropinones have been evaluated as catalysts for asymmetric epoxidation of alkenes with Oxone, via a dioxirane intermediate and the alpha-acetoxy derivative 7 affords the highest enantioselectivities.
