Enantioselective syntheses of α-methylene butyrolactones via asymmetric aminocarbonylation of tungsten–prop-2-ynyl compounds

Abstract

A tungsten–η1-vinylprop-2-ynyl compound undergoes enantioselective aminocarbonylation to afford an optically pure tungsten–π-γ-lactone; this π-allyl complex is useful for the efficient synthesis of optically pure α-methylene butyrolactone.
