Application

(4S-trans)-2,2-Dimethyl-α,α,α′,α′-tetra(1-naphthyl)-1,3-dioxolane-4,5-dimethanol, also known as TADDOL, is a chiral auxiliary that can be used:
  • For the highly enantioselective addition of primary alkyl Grignards to ketones.
  • As an organocatalyst for the activation of carbonyl functionality in vinylogous addition reaction of an aldehyde.
  • As a chiral dopant in the preparation of cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) having an aggregation-induced-emission dye.

Articles

The chiral auxiliaries TADDOLs (α,α,α,α-tetraaryl-1,3-dioxolane-4,5- dimethanols) developed by Seebach's group have found numerous applications in asymmetric synthesis ranging from utilization as stoichiometric chiral reagents or in Lewis acid mediated reactions, to roles in catalytic hydrogenation and stereoregular metathesis polymerization.

Apart from numerous examples using TADDOLs in metal-catalyzed asymmetric reactions, Rawal recently reported that TADDOLs could be used as Brønsted acid organocatalysts in highly stereoselective hetero-Diels–Alder reactions.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
