Palladium-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis of 2-pyrrolidinones with a quaternary carbon stereocenter

Author affiliations

Abstract

A palladium-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis of 2-pyrrolidinones with a quaternary stereocenter at the 3-position has been achieved by the reaction of γ-methylidene-δ-valerolactones with alkyl isocyanates. High enantioselectivity has been realized by employing a newly synthesized chiral phosphoramidite ligand.
