Synthesis and Characterisation of New Iridium Complexes with the (4S)-2-[2-(Diphenylphosphanyl)phenyl]-4-isopropyl-1,3-oxazoline Ligand That Catalyse Asymmetric Michael Reactions (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 9/2005)

2005_09/2005The cover picture shows the structure of a new chiral iridium(I) complex with the (4S)-2-[2-(diphenylphosphanyl)phenyl]-4-isopropyl-1,3-oxazoline ligand [(S)-PN] that catalyses the asymmetric Michael addition of keto or cyano esters to α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds. The hydrido(enolato) species, [IrH(NCCHCO2R2){(S)-PN}2]Cl, postulated as catalytic intermediates, have also been isolated and spectroscopically characterised. Details are discussed in the article by D. Carmona et al. on p. 1657 ff.
