Applications of N′-monofunctionalised TsDPEN derivatives in asymmetric catalysis
This review contains an account of recent developments in the applications of N′-monoalkylated or N′-mono(thio)acylated(N-sulfonyl)-1,2-diphenylethylene-1,2-diamine (TsDPEN) derivatives to asymmetric catalysis. The coverage features examples of applications of derivatives as ligands in organometallic complexes for use in asymmetric reduction and oxidation reactions. The use of TsDPEN derivatives as catalysts in a diverse range of C–C and C–S bond formation reactions is also described in detail.
