Zirconium-catalyzed intermolecular hydrophosphination using a chiral, air-stable primary phosphine

Author affiliations

Abstract

Catalytic hydrophosphination of alkenes using a chiral, air-stable primary phosphine, (R)-[2′-methoxy(1,1′-binapthalen)-2-yl]phosphine, (R)-MeO-MOPH2, proceeds under mild conditions with a zirconium catalyst, [κ5-N,N,N,N,C-(Me3SiNCH2CH2)2NCH2CH2NSiMe2CH]Zr (1), to selectively furnish anti-Markovnikov, air-stable secondary phosphines or tertiary phosphines with slight modification of the protocol. An intermediate in the catalysis, [(N3N)Zr(R)-MeO-MOPH] (4), was structurally characterized.
