Enantioselective suzuki reactions: catalytic asymmetric synthesis of compounds containing quaternary carbon centers.
- Prochiral ditriflates can act as substrates in asymmetric Suzuki couplings by using an enantioselective desymmetrization strategy. The products are obtained with selectivities up to 86% ee and contain a quaternary carbon center and a synthetically useful vinyl triflate functionality (see scheme).
