Abstract

original image

Die hoch enantioselektive Hydrierung von 2,4-disubstituierten 1,5-Benzodiazepinen mit den chiralen kationischen Ruthenium-Diamin-Katalysatoren (R,R)-1 (siehe Schema; BArF=Tetrakis(3,5-bistrifluormethylphenyl)borat) kann mit einem Enantiomer des Liganden gezielt beide Enantiomere der 2,4-Diaryl-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-benzodiazepin-Produkte liefern. Entscheidend ist einzig das achirale Gegenion.
