Development and application of enantioselective H-bond donor organocatalysts

Abstract:

This thesis presents the application and development of H-bond donor organocatalysts. Chapter 2 presents an intramolecular Michael addition of β-dicarbonyls onto α,β-unsaturated esters catalyzed by tertiary amine/H-bond donor bifunctional catalysts, achieving up to 88% ee.

Chapter 3 outlines the design and synthesis of a new family of cinchona-derived H-bond donor/ammonium salt phase-transfer catalysts. The ability of these asymmetric phase-transfer catalysts to activate less re...
