Asymmetric aza-Diels-Alder reaction of Danishefsky’s diene with imines in a chiral reaction medium
Published: 30 November 2006 by MDPI in The 10th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: The asymmetric aza-Diels-Alder reaction of chiral imines with Danishefsky’s diene in chiral ionic liquids provides the corresponding cycloadduct with moderate to high diastereoselectivity. The reaction has proved to perform better at room temperature in ionic liquids without either Lewis acid catalyst or organic solvent. Chiral ionic liquids are recycled while their efficiency is preserved.
