Influence of microemulsions on enantioselective synthesis of (R)-cyclopent-2-enol catalyzed by vitamin B12.

Abstract

The influence of microemulsions on the vitamin B12-catalyzed enantioselective isomerization of 1,2-epoxycyclopentane (1) to form (R)-cyclopent-2-enol (2) has been examined. The reaction was initiated by a reduction of vitamin B12 to the Co(I) form by Zn/NH4Cl. The largest enantiomeric excess (e.e.) in the products was 52% for (R)-2 obtained in a… (More)
