A new approach to the asymmetric Mannich reaction catalyzed by chiral N,N′-dioxide–metal complexes

DOI: 10.1039/C6SC03902B

A highly efficient asymmetric Mannich-type reaction between α-tetralone-derived β-keto esters/amides and 1,3,5-triaryl-1,3,5-triazinanes was realized in the presence of chiral N,N′-dioxide–Ni(II) or Mg(II) complex. A variety of optically active β-amino compounds with all-carbon quaternary stereocenters were obtained in good yields with excellent enantioselectivities. A possible transition state was proposed based on these experiments and previous reports.

A N,N′-dioxide/Mg(OTf)2 complex catalyzed enantioselective α-addition of isocyanides to alkylidene malonates

Weiwei Luo, Xiao Yuan, Lili Lin, Pengfei Zhou, Xiaohua Liu* and Xiaoming Feng*

Chem. Sci., 2016, 7, 4736-4740

DOI: 10.1039/C6SC00689B

A highly efficient catalytic asymmetric α-addition of isocyanides to alkylidene malonates was accomplished. The process was based on the utilization of a chiral N,N′-dioxide/MgII catalyst, delivering a variety of 2-alkyl-5-aminooxazoles in up to 99% yield and 96% ee under mild reaction conditions. Besides, a chiral imide and dipeptide could be easily obtained by ring-opening of the oxazole product, both of which are important structural motifs for many biologically active compounds. Based on the experimental investigations and previous work, a possible transition state model was proposed.

Asymmetric [3 + 2] cycloaddition of donor–acceptor aziridines with aldehydes via carbon–carbon bond cleavage

Yuting Liao, Xiaohua Liu*, Yu Zhang, Yali Xu, Yong Xia, Lili Lin and Xiaoming Feng*  

Chem. Sci., 2016, 7, 3775-3779 
DOI: 10.1039/C5SC04151A 

An enantioselective [3 + 2] annulation of donor–acceptor aziridines with aldehydes has been realized using a Nd(OTf)3/N,N′-dioxide/LiNTf2 catalyst system, providing various chiral cis-1,3-oxazolidines in moderate to good yields with high levels of stereocontrol. A relay catalytic process is proposed where LiNTf2 promotes the formation of azomethine ylide intermediates, and a chiral Nd(III)–N,N′-dioxide complex accelerates the asymmetric cycloaddition.

Nickel(II)-catalyzed enantioselective cyclopropanation of 3-alkenyl-oxindoles with phenyliodonium ylide via free carbene

Jing Guo, Yangbin Liu, Xiangqiang Li, Xiaohua Liu*, Lili Lin and Xiaoming Feng*

Chem. Sci., 2016, 7, 2717-2721 
DOI: 10.1039/C5SC03658E 

A chiral Lewis acid-promoted enantioselective cyclopropanation using phenyliodonium ylide as the carbene precursor was developed. A variety of spirocyclopropane-oxindoles with contiguous tertiary and all carbon quaternary centers were obtained in excellent outcomes (up to 99% yield, >19:1 d.r., up to 99% ee). EPR spectroscopy study supported a stepwise biradical mechanism.

Professor Feng Says:

Chemical Science is one of the most excellent and  influential chemistry journals. We are glad that our research work could be rapidly visible to peers via such a free, open-access way. And we are grateful for all the support and feedback provided by the editorial board of chemical science, the reviewers, and the readers. I believe that Chemical Science will showcase more significant research works in a new year.
