Several types of chiral hetero- and carbocyclic compounds have been synthesized by asymmetric hydrogenation of cyclic alkenes by using N,P-ligated iridium catalysts (see scheme). Six-membered cyclic alkenes were reduced in good to excellent selectivity, whereas the reduction of five-membered cyclic alkenes was generally less selective. The major enantiomer formed could be predicted from a selectivity model and isomeric alkenes gave complementary enantioselectivity.
