Nadine V. Hanhan, Nicolas R. Ball-Jones, Ngon T. Tran and Prof. Annaliese K. Franz Catalytic Asymmetric [3+2] Annulation of Allylsilanes with Isatins: Synthesis of Spirooxindoles Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
Silyl-inspired spirocycle: The title reaction is the first example of a catalytic asymmetric [3+2] annulation reaction with allylsilanes. The annulation reaction utilizes a chiral ScCl2(SbF6)/L catalyst and TMSCl as a promoter to afford spirooxindoles in excellent enantioselectivity at room temperature. The SiC bond can be oxidized to deliver hydroxy-substituted spirooxindoles. TMS=trimethylsilyl.
