Abstract

Diastereoselective synthesis and characterization of chiral unsymmetrical tris-spirocyclic cyclotriphosphazenes based on chiral 1,1'-bi-2-naphthol (BINOL) are reported. Specifically, the chiral compounds (-)N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)](O-2,2'C(6)H(4)-C(6)H(4)O)Cl(2) [(-)-4] and (-)N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)](OCH(2)CH(2)NMe)(2) [(-)-5] are prepared by starting with the chiral mono-spiro compound (-)N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)]Cl(4) [(-)-3]. Synthesis of four other chiral spirocyclics, N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)](OCH(2)CH(2) NMe)(O-2,2'C(6)H(4)-C(6)H(4)O)[(-)-6 and (+)-6], N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)](NMe(2))(4) [(-)-7], N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)](O-2,2'C(6)H(4)-C(6)H(4)O)(NMeCH(2)CH(2)OH)(2) [(-)-8 and (+)-8], and N(3)P(3)[1,1'-O(2)(C(10)H(6))(2)](O-2,2'C(6)H(4)-C(6)H(4)O)[NHCH(2)CH(2)CH(2)Si(OEt)(3)](2) (9) is also reported herein. Compounds 4-6 are obtained in the solid state diastereoselectively and their X-ray structures have been determined and discussed. The diastereoselectivity is also shown by structural characterization of two distinct isomers in the case of 6 [(-)-6 and (+)-6, respectively] by starting with precursor of 3 having (R) or (S)-BINOL residue. The (1)H NMR spectra of 7 and 8 exhibit doublets with virtual coupling for the methyl protons, consistent with the chiral nature of the binaphthoxy residue. The potential of 9, which hydrolyzes readily in CDCl(3) solution, as a useful precursor for chiral polymer applications is highlighted.
