|1. (WO2001034612) CHIRAL PHOSPHINES, TRANSITION METAL COMPLEXES THEREOF AND USES THEREOF IN ASYMMETRIC REACTIONS|
|Applicants:||THE PENN STATE RESEARCH FOUNDATION
|Title:||CHIRAL PHOSPHINES, TRANSITION METAL COMPLEXES THEREOF AND USES THEREOF IN ASYMMETRIC REACTIONS|
Chiral ligands and transition metal complexes based on such chiral ligands useful in asymmetric catalysis are disclosed. The chiral ligands include (R,S,S,R)-DIOP*. The ruthenium complex reduces enamide to the corresponding amine with up to 99% enantioselectivity. The transition metal complexes of the chiral ligands are useful in asymmetric reactions such as asymmetric hydrogenation, hydride transfer, hydrosilylation, hydroboration, hydrovinylation, hydroformylation, hydrocarboxylation, isomerization, allylic alkylation, cyclopropanation, Diels-Alder reaction, Heck reaction, isomerization, Aldol reaction, Michael addition and epoxidation reactions.
