Stereocontrol in asymmetric S(E)' reactions of -substituted ,-unsaturated aldehydes. Academic Article uri icon


  • Asymmetric SE' reactions of (E)- and (Z)--substituted-,-unsaturated aldehydes have been studied for the stereocontrolled preparation of nonracemic alcohols. Mild exchange reactions of allylic stannanes provide access to chiral 1,3-bis(tolylsulfonyl)-4,5-diphenyl-1,3-diaza-2-borolidines. These reagents display reactivity with the -substituted ,-unsaturated aldehydes, which is characterized by matched and mismatched elements of stereocontrol. Computational analysis (using density functional theory) provides valuable insights to guide reaction development.
