Dr. Laina M. Geary, Dr. Sang Kook Woo, Joyce C. Leung and Prof. Michael J. Krische Diastereo- and Enantioselective Iridium-Catalyzed Carbonyl Propargylation from the Alcohol or Aldehyde Oxidation Level: 1,3-Enynes as Allenylmetal Equivalents Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
Axial to axial to point chirality transfer: Exposure of conjugated enynes to alcohols in the presence of an iridium catalyst modified by a segphos ligand results in the generation of aldehyde–allenyliridium pairs and formation of enantiomerically enriched products of carbonyl anti-(α-methyl)propargylation (see scheme). An identical set of products are obtained from aldehydes under related transfer hydrogenation conditions by employing formic acid as a reductant.
