Enantioselective Copper-Catalyzed Radical Cyanation of Propargylic C–H Bonds: Easy Access to Chiral Allenyl Nitriles

The first enantioselective copper-catalyzed cyanation of propargylic C–H bonds via radical relay was established using novel BoxOTMS ligands, providing an efficient and straightforward tool for the construction of structurally diverse chiral allenyl nitriles in good yields with excellent enantioselectivities. This reaction features high functional group tolerance and mild conditions. In addition, the chiral allene products can be readily converted to other chiral compounds via axis-to-center chirality transfer. This result is published in JACS. Congratulations Ronghua Lu.

Asymmetric Palladium-Catalyzed Oxycarbonylation of Terminal Alkenes: Efficient Access to β-Hydroxy Alkylcarboxylic Acids

A novel Pd-catalyzed enantioselective oxycarbonylation of alkenes has been established. The ligand with an ethyl group at the C-6 position of Pyox plays a significant role in the intermolecular oxypalladation process, leading to high reactivity and excellent enantioselective control. this method allows for broad alkene substrate scope, excellent regio- and enantioselectivities, scalabilities and a wide array of applications, and provides a useful route for the convenient and straightforward synthesis of chiral β-hydroxy alkylcarboxylic acids/esters. This result is published in ACIE. Congratulations Bing Tian. Read More
