Abstract

original image

Tausendsassa Pyrazolamid: Rational entworfene Pyrazolamide wirken als Michael-Donoren in Harnstoff-katalysierten asymmetrischen Michael-Reaktionen mit ausgezeichneten chemischen und optischen Ausbeuten (siehe Schema). Die Pyrazolamidgruppe wirkt als Ester-Äquivalent, dirigierende Gruppe, aktivierende Gruppe sowie, in weiteren Umwandlungen des Produkts, als Abgangsgruppe.
