Internal Lewis acid assisted ureas: tunable hydrogen bond donor catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

The strategic incorporation of internal Lewis acids onto urea scaffolds gives rise to a family of tunable hydrogen bond donor catalysts. The nature of the Lewis acid and associated ligands affects the urea polarization, acidity, and activity in reactions of nitrocyclopropane carboxylates and nitrodiazoesters.
