Synthesis of a neonicotinoide pesticide derivative via chemoenzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution.
ABSTRACT Chemoenzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) via combined ruthenium and enzyme catalysis was used in the key step of a synthesis of a neonicotinoid pesticide derivative (S)-3. The DKR was carried out under mild conditions with low catalyst loading. The method gives (S)-3 in high enantiomeric excess (98%).

ABSTRACT: Dimeric palladium bromide complexes bearing monodentate N-heterocyclic carbene ligands have been identified as efficient catalysts for the chemoselective racemization of axially chiral allenyl alcohols. In combination with porcine pancreatic lipase as biocatalyst, a dynamic kinetic resolution has been developed, giving access to optically active allenes in good yield and high enantiomeric purityChemistry 03/2010; 16(15):4447-4451. · 5.93 Impact Factor
