Synthesis of new class of ligands derived from isosorbide and their application to asymmetric reduction of aromatic ketones by transfer hydrogenation
Published: 30 October 2011 by MDPI in The 15th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: A new class of β-amino alcohol and diamine ligands has been prepared from isosorbide as a chiral renewable source. The efficiency of these ligands has been evaluated for the metal-catalyzed enantioselective reduction of aromatic ketones by transfer hydrogenation, giving excellent conversion and good enantioselectivity.
