Dipl.-Chem. Anna Falk, B. Sc. Anna-Lena Göderz and Prof. Dr. Hans-Günther Schmalz Enantioselective Nickel-Catalyzed Hydrocyanation of Vinylarenes Using Chiral Phosphine–Phosphite Ligands and TMS-CN as a Source of HCN Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
Anti-headache chemistry: In the presence of a tailored modular P,P ligand the nickel-catalyzed addition of HCN, generated in situ from TMS-CN, to styrene derivatives proceeds with an unprecedented level of stereocontrol (up to 97 % ee) to give 2-aryl-acetonitriles, for example, the depicted precursor of Ibuprofen.
