Asymmetric acyl-transfer promoted by readily assembled chiral 4-N,N-dialkylaminopyridine derivatives

Abstract

The development of a new class of chiral 4-N,N-dialkylaminopyridine acyl-transfer catalysts capable of exploiting both van der Waals (π) and H-bonding interactions to allow remote chiral information to stereochemically control the kinetic resolution of sec-alcohols with moderate to excellent selectivity (s = 6–30). Catalysts derived from (S)-α,α-diarylprolinol are considerably superior to analogues devoid of a tertiary hydroxyl moiety and possess high activity and selectivity across a broad range of substrates.
