Enantioselective palladaelectro-catalyzed C–H olefinations and allylations for N–C axial chirality†
Enantioselective palladaelectro-catalyzed C–H alkenylations and allylations were achieved with easily-accessible amino acids as transient directing groups. This strategy provided access to highly enantiomerically-enriched N–C axially chiral scaffolds under exceedingly mild conditions. The synthetic utility of our strategy was demonstrated by a variety of alkenes, while the versatility of our approach was reflected by atroposelective C–H allylations. Computational studies provided insights into a facile C–H activation by a seven-membered palladacycle.
