Chiral phosphoramidite ligands for asymmetric synthesis available from Strem UK

New ligands have been successfully tested in enantioselective conjugate addition.

Enantioselective conjugate addition of organometallic reagents to α,β-unsaturated organic substrates is among the most important of organic transformations1,2. Substrates used in this reaction are usually α,β-unsaturated ketones, aldehydes, esters, amides, sulfoxides, or nitro compounds. Often referred to as 1,4-addition, these reactions use a variety of organometallic reagents, where non-stabilized organic moieties are directly introduced into an organic structure with high chemo- and regioselectivity transforming sp2 carbon into an sp3 one 1.

Since asymmetric synthesis plays a key role in chiral ligands, Strem is happy to introduce two new BINAP-based phosphoramidite products 15-0860 and 15-0870, that have been developed at the University of Oxford (Fig. 1).

Using phosphoramidite ligands; 15-0860 and 15-0870, as the catalytic source of chirality, positive activity in the copper-catalyzed hydrometalation/asymmetric conjugate addition approach of alkylzirconium reagents has been reported, which provides all-carbon quaternary centers by coupling alkenes with β-substituted enones3-6 and α,β-unsaturated lactones7. More details are given in the corresponding technical notes found on Strem Chemicals web site at www.strem.com.
