Benzotetramisole (1) promotes the reaction of ammonium enolates derived from arylacetic acids with N-tosyl-α,β-unsaturated ketimines, thus giving dihydropyridones with high diastereo- and enantiocontrol. These products readily undergo N- to C-sulfonyl photoisomerization and are derivatized to afford stereodefined piperidines and tetrahydropyrans.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The first N-Heterocyclic Carbene (NHC) mediated activation of stable carboxylate esters to generate enolate intermediates is disclosed. The catalytically generated arylacetic ester enolates undergo enantioselective reactions with α,β-unsaturated imines.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: HBTM-2.1 promotes the direct asymmetric α-amination of carboxylic acids with N-aryl-N-aroyldiazenes at low catalyst loadings (as low as 0.25 mol%), giving either 1,3,4-oxadiazin-6-ones or N-protected α-amino acid derivatives (upon ring opening) with exquisite enantiocontrol (typically ≥99% ee).

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Two alternative synthetic approaches to a variety of enantioenriched 6-arylated piperidin-2-ones have been developed. The first one is based on the hydrogenation of suitably arylated chiral cyclic enehydrazides. The second approach relies on the asymmetric catalytic hydrogenation of the corresponding N-alkylated precursors.
