Design and Synthesis of Polymeric Chiral Bicyclo[3.3.0] Diene as Reusable Ligand for Rhodium-Catalyzed Asymmetric 1,4-Addition



A series of A-B type sterically regular bicyclio[3.3.0] diene-based polymers were designed and synthesized as immobilized chiral diene ligands for asymmetric catalysis. With polymeric diene 6b, good to excellent enantioselectivities can be achieved in Rh-catalyzed asymmetric 1,4-addition of arylboronic acids to α,β-unsaturated ketones.
