Diastereoselective and enantioselective Rh(I)-catalyzed additions of arylboronic acids to N-tert-butanesulfinyl and N-diphenylphosphinoyl aldimines.

Abstract

Two new Rh(I)-catalyzed methods for the synthesis of chiral alpha-branched amines via addition of arylboronic acids to N-tert-butanesulfinyl and N-diphenylphosphinoyl imines have been developed. The syntheses are more functional group tolerant than alternative methods utilizing Grignard or organolithium reagents, and the imine activating groups used are… (More)
