Asymmetric synthesis in the nickel-complex-catalysed formation of olefins from allyl alcohols and Grignard reagents

Abstract

The reaction of three isomeric pentenols with methyl magnesium bromide catalysed by (–) DIOP nickel dicloride [DIOP =O,O′-iospropylidene-2,3-dihydroxy-1,4-bis(diphenylphosphino)butane] leads to optically active 3-methylpent-1-ene, with the optical yield and product configuration related to the configuration of the initially formed (η3-allyl)nickel intermediates.
