phosphoramide hybrid catalysts.
The diastereo- and enantioselective propargylic alkylation of propargylic alcohols with E-enecarbamates in the presence of a catalytic amount of thiolate-bridged diruthenium complexes bearing an optically active phosphoramide moiety gives the corresp

Dual catalysis with copper and rhenium for trifluoromethylation of propargylic alcohols: efficient synthesis of α-trifluoromethylated enones.
Trifluoromethylation of propargylic alcohols to provide (Z)-α-trifluoromethylated enones and β-unsubstituted α-trifluoromethylated enones proceeded with high yield and selectivity in the presence of CuI/Re2O7. The Z isomer was formed under kinetic co

Catalytic asymmetric synthesis of CF3-substituted tertiary propargylic alcohols via direct aldol reaction of α-N3 amide.
Organofluorine compounds are found in several important classes of chemicals, such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and functional materials. Chemists have been immensely interested in the development of methodologies for expeditious access to fluo

Borylation of propargylic substrates by bimetallic catalysis. Synthesis of allenyl, propargylic, and butadienyl Bpin derivatives.
Bimetallic Pd/Cu and Pd/Ag catalytic systems were used for borylation of propargylic alcohol derivatives. The substrate scope includes even terminal alkynes. The reactions proceed stererospecifically with formal SN2' pathways to give allenyl boronate

Enantioselective synthesis of tertiary α-chloro esters by non-covalent catalysis.
We report an enantioselective approach to tertiary α-chloro esters through the reaction of silyl ketene acetals and N-chlorosuccinimide. The reaction is promoted by a chiral squaramide catalyst, which is proposed to engage both reagents exclusively t

Enantioselective N-heterocyclic carbene-catalyzed synthesis of indenopyrones.
The chiral N-heterocyclic carbene-catalyzed [4 + 2] cyclization of α-chloroaldehydes and arylidene indanediones was developed, giving the corresponding indenopyrones in good yields with high diastereoselectivities and enantioselectivities.

Copper-catalyzed propargylic substitution of dichloro substrates: enantioselective synthesis of trisubstituted allenes and formation of propargylic quaternary stereogenic centers.
An easy and versatile Cu-catalyzed propargylic substitution process is presented. Using easily prepared prochiral dichloro substrates, readily available Grignard reagents together with catalytic amount of copper salt and chiral ligand, we accessed a

Oxidative enantioselective α-fluorination of aliphatic aldehydes enabled by N-heterocyclic carbene catalysis.
Described is the first study on oxidative enantioselective α-fluorination of simple aliphatic aldehydes enabled by N-heterocyclic carbene catalysis. N-fluorobis(phenyl)sulfonimide serves as a an oxidant and as an "F" source. The C-F bond formation oc

Cooperative catalysis by palladium and a chiral phosphoric acid: enantioselective amination of racemic allylic alcohols.
Cooperative catalysis by [Pd(dba)2] and the chiral phosphoric acid BA1 in combination with the phosphoramidite ligand L8 enabled the efficient enantioselective amination of racemic allylic alcohols with a variety of functionalized amines. This cataly

arylation for the synthesis of diindolylmethanes from propargylic alcohols.
Various highly substituted 2,3'-diindolylmethane heterocycles were prepared from propargylic alcohols and indole nucleophiles via a transition metal-catalyzed tandem indole annulation/arylation reaction for the first time. Among the metal catalysts w
