Enantiomerically pure acetals as ligands for asymmetric catalysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Enantiomerically pure acetals derived from C 2 -symmetric diols have been examined as ligands for asymmetric catalysis. Ligands in which the acetal is tethered to an auxiliary donor atom have afforded good levels of enantioselectivity in palladium catalysed allylic substitution (up to 88% ee).
