ChemInform Abstract: L-Selectride-Mediated Highly Diastereoselective Asymmetric Reductive Aldol Reaction: Access to an Important Subunit for Bioactive Molecules
Department of Chemistry, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907, USA.Organic Letters (Impact Factor: 6.36). 11/2008; 10(21):4811-4. DOI: 10.1021/ol801971t
L-selectride reduction of a chiral or achiral enone followed by reaction of the resulting enolate with optically active alpha-alkoxy aldehydes proceeded with excellent diastereoselectivity. The resulting alpha,alpha-dimethyl-beta-hydroxy ketones are inherent to a variety of biologically active natural products.

- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A new primary–tertiary diamine catalyst is easily prepared in a few steps from inexpensive, commercially available, enantiopure materials. This organocatalyst can be effective catalyzed the direct asymmetric aldol and Mannich reactions. The anti-aldol products can be obtained with up to a 99:1 anti/syn ratio and >98 % ee, while the syn-Mannich products could be obtained with up to a 99:1 syn/anti ratio and >99 % ee. Catalyst 1c can be used efficiently on a large scale with the enantioselectivities of the anti-aldol and syn-Mannich reactions being maintained at the same level, which offers a great possibility for application in industry.
- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The intermolecular reductive coupling reaction of cyclopent-2-enone and aromatic aldehydes was realized by chiral rhodium-(bisoxazolinyl)phenyl catalysts, Rh(Phebox-Ph)(OAc)(2)(H(2)O), with diphenymethylsilane as a hydride donor to give the corresponding beta-hydroxyketones in high anti-selectivity (up to 96%) with high enantioselectivity (up to 93%).
