A new family of chiral lanthanide complexes derived from (R)-binaphthol has been synthesized by a one-pot procedure using only commercially available substrates. These complexes were evaluated for the aminolysis of meso-epoxides and proved to be efficient enantioselective catalysts. The samarium complex coordinated by two (R)-binaphthoxide ligands was the… CONTINUE READING
