Bifunctional iminophosphoranes as catalysts for enantioselective prototrophic shifts

Abstract:

This thesis describes investigations into the application of the bifunctional iminophosphorane (BIMP) catalyst previously developed in the Dixon group to new transformations in superbase catalysis. Chapter 2 summarises the development of the enantioselective [1,3]-prototropic shifts of β,γ-unsaturated cyclohexenones into their chiral conjugated counterparts. The reaction proceeds via an initial rapid and reversible deprotonation followed by a rate- and stereo-determining protonation at the...
