Catalytic asymmetric synthesis of epoxides mediated by chiral iminium salts

Abstract

The catalytic asymmetric oxidation of unfunctionalised alkenes is achieved by a non-transition metal catalysed process; just 5 mol% of the binaphthyl-based iminium salt 1 is sufficient to catalyse the oxidation of alkenes to epoxides with moderate to good enantioselectivity.
