Dr. Alba E. Díaz-Álvarez, Laura Mesas-Sánchez and Dr. Peter Dinér Non-Enzymatic Dynamic Kinetic Resolution of Secondary Aryl Alcohols: Planar Chiral Ferrocene and Ruthenium Catalysts in Cooperation Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
“Ruth” helps iron! A novel method for the non-enzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) of secondary aryl alcohols by the use of the planar chiral ferrocene derivative (+)-1 in combination with the ruthenium racemization catalyst 2 yields acetylated alcohols in high enantioselectivity and yield. This development opens opportunities for new developments in the field of non-enzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution.
