Highly enantioselective zirconium-catalyzed cyclization of aminoalkenes.


Aminoalkenes are catalytically cyclized in the presence of cyclopentadienylbis(oxazolinyl)borato group 4 complexes {PhB(C5H4)(Ox(R))2}M(NMe2)2 (M = Ti, Zr, Hf; Ox(R) = 4,4-dimethyl-2-oxazoline, 4S-isopropyl-5,5-dimethyl-2-oxazoline, 4S-tert-butyl-2-oxazoline) at room temperature and below, affording five-, six-, and seven-membered N-heterocyclic amines with… (More)
