Catalytic Asymmetric Claisen Rearrangement of Unactivated Allyl Vinyl Ethers.

02:47 EDT 25th July 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Catalytic Asymmetric Claisen Rearrangement of Unactivated Allyl Vinyl Ethers."

Nearly a century after their original discovery, catalyzed enantioselective variants of the venerable Claisen rearrangement remain relatively rare. We have discovered a cooperative transition metal-Lewis acid cocatalyst system that affects highly enantio- and diastereoselective examples of archetypical Claisen rearrangements. The catalyzed rearrangements proceed using an easily prepared enantioenriched transition metal catalyst and a commercially available Lewis acid cocatalyst at ambient temperature in common solvents.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ethers that are linked to a benzene ring structure.

RNA that has catalytic activity. The catalytic RNA sequence folds to form a complex surface that can function as an enzyme in reactions with itself and other molecules. It may function even in the absence of protein. There are numerous examples of RNA species that are acted upon by catalytic RNA, however the scope of this enzyme class is not limited to a particular type of substrate.

Biological molecules that possess catalytic activity. They may occur naturally or be synthetically created. Enzymes are usually proteins, however CATALYTIC RNA and CATALYTIC DNA molecules have also been identified.

Compounds that contain two halogenated benzene rings linked via an OXYGEN atom. Many polybrominated diphenyl ethers are used as FLAME RETARDANTS.
