Abstract

original image

Molybdenum-catalyzed asymmetric ring-closing metathesis has been used for the kinetic resolution of racemic planar-chiral (η6-arene)chromium complexes with excellent enantioselectivity. The products are excellent precursors for the synthesis of various planar-chiral (η6-arene)chromium derivatives and can also be applied as chiral ligands in rhodium-catalyzed asymmetric reactions.
