Enantioselective partial reduction of 2,5-disubstituted pyrroles via a chiral protonation approach.
- [reaction: see text] The partial reduction of 2,5-pyrrole diester 1 followed by enantioselective protonation in situ to furnish synthetically useful building blocks is described. An enantiomeric excess of up to 74% was achieved using (-)-ephedrine and related analogues as chiral proton sources. The pyrroline product obtained could be recrystallized to give enantiomerically pure material.
