Chiral N-heterocyclic carbene ligands for asymmetric catalytic oxindole synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

The Pd-catalysed asymmetric intramolecular α-arylation of amideenolates containing heteroatom substituents gives chiral 3-alkoxy or 3-aminooxindoles in high yield and with enantioselectivities up to 97% ee when a new chiral N-heterocyclic carbene ligand is used.
