Indium–bipyridine-catalyzed, enantioselective thiolysis of meso-epoxides

Author affiliations

Abstract

The indium–bipyridine-catalyzed, enantioselective ring-opening of meso-epoxides with aliphatic and aromatic thiols furnished 1,2-mercapto alcohols in good yields and excellent enantioselectivities; the crystal structure of the chiral catalyst reveals a pentagonal-bipyramidal coordination geometry around the indium center.
