Virtual Planar Chirality. A New Approach to Catalyst and Ligand Design
Published: 11 September 2000 by MDPI in The 4th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: Attachment of a chiral imidazole or chiral oxazoline to either (h5-cyclopentadienyl)(h4-tetraphenylcyclobutadiene)cobalt or pentaphenylferrocene results in the heterocycle mimicking an environment of planar chirality. This chiral relay effect is demonstrated by both highly diastereoselective palladation and application of the oxazoline complexes as ligands in asymmetric catalysis.
