Chirality

Enantioselective cyanosilylation of ketones catalyzed by recyclable polymeric and dimeric Mn(III) salen complexes at room temperature.


PMID 18561149

Abstract

Recyclable polymeric 1 and dimeric 2 chiral Mn(III) salen complexes catalyzed enantioselective cyanosilylation of various ketones in the presence of triphenylphosphine oxide as an additive proceeded smoothly at room temperature, providing excellent yields (up to 98%) and enantiomeric excess (up to 86%) of respective cyanohydrin trimethylsilyl ether. For most of the substrates, the Catalyst 1 showed slightly better reactivity and enantioselecitivity than the Catalyst 2 nevertheless both the catalysts were easily recovered and reused four times with the retention of their efficiency.
