Chemo- and enantioselective Rh-catalysed hydrogenation of 3-methylene-1,2-diazetidines: application to vicinal diamine synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Rhodium catalysed hydrogenation of 3-methylene-1,2-diazetidines with a range of chiral ligands is reported. Using Mandyphos, excellent levels of chemo- and enantioselectivity (up to 89% ee) can be achieved. Reductive cleavage of the derived 3-substituted 1,2-diazetidine with LiDBB provides the enantioenriched biscarbamate protected 1,2-diamine.
