Stereogenic cis-2-substituted-N-acetyl-3-hydroxy-indolines via ruthenium(II)-catalyzed dynamic kinetic resolution-asymmetric transfer hydrogenation

Abstract

Ruthenium(II)-catalyzed dynamic kinetic resolution-asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of racemic 2-substituted-N-acetyl-3-oxoindolines to cis-2-substituted-N-acetyl-3-hydroxyindolines is reported. Using homochiral {Ru[TfDPEN](p-cymene)} catalyst with S/C= 400 in HCO2H/Et3N mixture, up to >99.9% ee and >99:1 dr are obtained in high yields (79-98%). This method provides the first example of preparing enantiomerically pure indolines through asymmetric transfer hydrogenation (ATH).
