Phase-Transfer Catalysis via a Proton Sponge: A Bifunctional Role for Biscyclopropenimine.

Abstract

The use of a bis(diisopropylamino)cyclopropenimine-substituted bis-protonated proton sponge as a bifunctional phase-transfer catalyst is reported. Experimental studies and DFT calculations suggest it operates simultaneously as a hydrogen bond donor and a phase-transfer catalyst, facilitating the movement of charged intermediates from the interface to the… (More)
