Catalytic enantioselective desymmetrization of meso cyclic anhydrides via iridium-catalyzed hydrogenation



Catalytic enantioselective desymmetrization of meso cyclic anhydrides via iridium-catalyzed hydrogenation



Organic Letters 15(7): 1740-1743



A novel method to desymmetrize meso-anhydrides into lactones via asymmetric hydrogenation catalyzed by the Ir-C3*-TunePhos complex has been developed. Various chiral lactones were synthesized with full conversion and excellent enantioselectivity under high reaction temperature.
