Non-racemic (scalemic) planar-chiral five-membered metallacycles: routes, means, and pitfalls in their synthesis and characterization

Abstract

This critical review provides a systematic classification of the synthetic routes to planar-chiral five-membered metallacycles into several routes, namely C–H bond activation, oxidative addition, transmetallation and optical resolution. As a characteristic of these bulk compounds is that they are synthesized as binary mixtures of enantiomers in proportions varying from the racemate to enantiopure, a review of absolute-configuration determination of the title planar-chiral scalemates is presented. This review is of interest to organic and organometallic synthetic chemists involved in asymmetric synthesis (97 references).
