New chiral ligands bearing two N-heterocyclic carbene moieties at a dioxolane backbone. Gold, palladium and rhodium complexes as enantioselective catalysts

Abstract

Biscarbene ligands with two imidazolin-2-ylidene moieties at a chiral dioxolane backbone were used as ligands for gold, rhodium and palladium complexes. All new complexes showed varying degrees of enantioselectivity toward hydrogenation of prochiral alkenes with ees up to 95%.
