Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A series of new phosphorus-containing oxazoline ligands has been developed. The use of these ligands for asymmetric palladium catalysed allylic substitution of 1,3-diphenylprop-2-enyl-1-acetate 12 with the sodium salt of dimethylmalonate has been achieved with 90-94% ee and 88-99% yield.
