Highly enantioselective Mukaiyama aldol reaction in aqueous conditions using a chiral iron(ii) bipyridine catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly enantioselective method for the catalytic Mukaiyama aldol reaction of silyl enol ethers with aldehydes in aqueous conditions was developed. The desired aldol products were obtained in excellent yields, diastereo- and enantioselectivities. Structural evidence of the pre-catalyst revealed an unprecedented heptadentate Fe(II) complex with the chiral bipyridine ligand.
