ABSTRACT A family of monodentate polystyrene-supported phosphites, phosphoramidites and phosphanes has been prepared and evaluated as ligands in rhodium-catalysed asymmetric hydrogenation and palladium-catalysed asymmetric allylic alkylation. The supported ligands yielded active and enantioselective catalysts, which in selected cases match the performance of the nonsupported counterparts. As expected, the performance of the supported ligands in the rhodium-catalysed hydrogenation depends on the nature of the ligand, the type of polymeric support, as well as on the substrate. Additionally, the supported ligands have been applied in the monodentate ligand combination approach, by combining them with nonsupported monodentate ligands. The partially supported heteroligand combinations possess different catalytic properties than the related nonsupported combinations. The heteroligand species, however, are not formed selectively, and nonsupported homoleptic complexes also contribute to the overall activity.

    ABSTRACT: Catalytic hydrogenation under mild conditions of olefins, unsaturated aldeydes and ketones, nitriles and nitroarenes was investigated, using a supported rhodium complex obtained by copolymerization of Rh(cod)(aaema) [cod: 1,5-cyclooctadiene, aaema-: deprotonated form of 2-(acetoacetoxy)ethyl methacrylate] with acrylamides. In particular, the hydrogenation reaction of halonitroarenes was carried out under 20 bar hydrogen pressure with ethanol as solvent at room temperature, in order to minimize hydro-dehalogenation. The yields in haloanilines ranged from 85% (bromoaniline) to 98% (chloroaniline).

    ABSTRACT: The transition metal compounds Pd(OAc)2, RhCl3·4H2O and RuCl3 · nH2O were adsorbed onto the nanoporous silica polyamine composite (SPC) particles (150–250 µm), WP-1 [poly(ethyleneimine) on amorphous silica], BP-1 [poly(allylamine) on amorphous silica], WP-2 (WP-1 modified with chloroacetic acid) and BP-2 (BP-1 modified with chloroacetic acid). Inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry analysis of the dried samples after digestion indicated metal loadings of 0.4–1.2 mmol g−1 except for RhCl3·4H2O on BP-2 which showed a metal loading of only 0.1 mmol g−1. The metal loaded composites were then screened as hydrogenation catalysts for the reduction of 1-octene, 1-decene, 1-hexene and 1, 3-cyclohexadiene at a hydrogen pressure of 5 atm in the temperature range of 50–90 °C. All 12 combinations of SPC and transition metal compound proved active for the reduction of the terminal olefins, but isomerization to internal alkenes was competitive in all cases. Under these conditions, selective hydrogenation of 1,3-cyclohexadiene to cyclohexene was observed with some of the catalysts. Turnover frequencies were estimated for the hydrogenation reactions based on the metal loading and were in some cases comparable to more conventional heterogeneous hydrogenation catalysts. Examination of the catalysts before and after reaction with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy revealed that, in the cases of Pd(OAc)2 on WP-2, BP-1 and BP-2, conversion of the surface-ligand bound metal ions to metal nano-particles occurs. This was not the case for Pd(OAc)2 on WP-1 or for RuCl3 · nH2O and RhCl3· 4H2O on all four composites. The overall results are discussed in terms of differences in metal ion coordination modes for the composite transition-metal combinations. Suggested ligand interactions are supported by solid state CPMAS 13C NMR analyses and by analogy with previous structural investigations of metal binding modes on these composite materials.

    ABSTRACT: Recent developments concerning the application of polymer supported organometallic reagents in solid phase synthesis are reviewed, with a special focus on methodology for carbon-carbon formation. Examples of reactions that are covered include the classical Suzuki, Sonogashira and Heck coupings, but also aryl amination, epoxide opening, rearrangements, metathesis and cyclopropanation. Applications in the field of asymmetric synthesis are also discussed.
