In the asymmetric addition of allyltrichlorosilane to benzaldehyde, polystyrenes with chiral phosphoramide substituents as Lewis base catalysts showed up to 2.4 times better catalytic activity and 1.4 times higher enantioselectivity than the corresponding low-molecular-weight analogues.

    ABSTRACT: The development of catalytic enantioselective reactions is a challenging area in synthetic organic chemistry. In the last decade, numerous chiral metal complexes, which act as Lewis acids, have been very successful. However, Lewis base catalyzed asymmetric reactions are also attracting attention. Recent developments in silicon-based chemistry have led to new asymmetric reactions, which involve so-called hypervalent silicates as intermediates, wherein new types of organocatalysts are often utilized as promoters. This review presents the progress in silicate-mediated asymmetric reactions catalyzed by chiral Lewis bases, particularly those based on various types of silicon Compounds.

    ABSTRACT: This review article is divided in two parts. In the first part (Sections 2 and 3) selected examples of the publications that appeared in the literature in the period 2003-2005 in the field of immobilized organic catalysis are presented. When appropriate, the results of these publications are compared to those reported earlier and already discussed in a previous review article (see ref.([4])). On the basis of this survey, in Section 4 some general considerations about when and why a supported version of an organic catalyst is worth developing are proposed. In Section 4 a list of suggestions about how the process of immobilization should be carried out is also included, taking into account several factors such as the properties of the catalyst, the nature of the support, and the mode of connection of the catalyst to the support. 1 Introduction 2 Achiral Organic Catalysts 2.1 Catalysts for Oxidation Reactions 2.2 Lewis Base Catalysts 2.3 Acid Catalysts 2.4 Thiazolium Salts 2.5 Miscellaneous Catalysts 2.6 Bifunctional Catalysts 3 Chiral Organic Catalysts 3.1 Catalysts for Oxidation Reactions 3.2 Lewis Base Catalysts 3.3 Catalysts Derived from Cinchona Alkaloids 3.4 Catalysts Derived from Amino Acids 4 A Short Discussion on the Practical Aspects of Catalyst Immobilization 4.1 When? 4.2 Why? 4.3 How? 5 Conclusions

    ABSTRACT: Crosslinked polystyrene-supported resins 4, 7a, and 7b containing N-sulfonylated beta-amino alcohol in 98, 20, and 40% loadings are prepared. Asymmetric diethylzinc additions to benzaldehyde employing titanium complexes of 10 mol % resins 4, 7a, or 7b are examined and the best performed 7a/Ti(O-i-Pr)4 catalytic system applies to various aldehydes to afford desired secondary alcohols in excellent enantioselectivities up to 95% ee. The resin 7a is reused five times, giving the product with enantioselectivities >or=86% ee and an 81% ee is obtained when the resin is used the sixth time. The used resin 7a is refreshed with 1 M HCl and the asymmetric reaction employing the regenerated resin 7a gives the product in 88% ee.
