Highly Enantiomerically Enriched Planar Chiral Naphtalene Tricarbonylchromium Complexes

Published in Chemistry - an Asian journal. 2006, vol. 1, no. 3, p. 459-468
Abstract Lithiation/electrophile trapping reactions were carried out with the highly enantiomerically enriched complex [Cr(5-bromonaphthalene)(CO)3]. Electrophile quenching with ClPPh2, PhCHO, and (Me3SiO)2 afforded the enantiomerically enriched (>97% ee) planar chiral 5-substituted naphthalene complexes with PPh2, CH(Ph)OH, and OH substituents, respectively. Very mild Pd-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions were developed and applied to the highly labile [Cr(5-bromonaphthalene)(CO)3] to give nine new planar chiral aryl-, heteroaryl-, alkynyl-, and alkenylnaphthalene chromium complexes with high enantiomeric purity. The efficient ambient-temperature coupling reactions with borinates prepared in situ were also applied to a number of chlorobenzene complexes and to aryl and vinyl halides.
