Abstract

original image

Open up: An [Ir(COD)Cl]2/ (S)-NMDPP (COD=1,5-cyclooctadiene; NMDPP=neomenthyldiphenylphosphine) complex catalyzes asymmetric ring-opening reactions of oxabenzonorbornadienes with phenolic or naphtholic nucleophiles efficiently. Up to 96 % yield and 88 % ee was achieved. DMF=N,N-dimethylformamide.
