evans auxiliary
« on: August 12, 2017, 04:26:53 AM »

Hi guys, I wonder if any one of you has experience with evans auxililary. Is it possible to coordinate a metal and fix the conformation in case when the amide cant be deprotonated at alpha position? I mean, I have N-substitued derivative of anthranilic acid and I would like to do some reaction on the N-substituent using (pretty much any) auxiliary I didnt check the literature yet because it is just an idea and I dont have much time for it now

Where are you trying to deprotonate and introduce your stereoselectivity?

Im trying to do atroposelective cyclization of the of the NH to form variously substitued heterocycles (for example benzimidazole) so I was wondering If I could use it as a source of chirality. Im gonna try more chiral amines or esters but I was wondering about this one. Actualy, no deprotonation in this case.

Sounds like an interesting project.

You can use chiral Cu(II) BOX catalysts for asymmetric 1,4-addition to achiral imides:

The aniline nitrogen might interfere, but definitely worth a go...

Thanks for the paper, thats pretty much exactly what I had in mind.

We even tried to introduce the oxazoline into the molecule but the anilin nitrogen interferes with it so we get 1:1 mix of oxazoline and 7 membered ring and I cant realy distinguish them by NMR

Is not the acidic proton important to form the adduct? Amid-carbonyls are not very good for coordinating any metal i think, you need some form of enolate, no?

Exactly, thats why I asked here if someone can share a thought about this. While amid-carbonyls might not be good at coordinating, authors of the paper by clarkstill do exactly that - coordinate copper with chiral ligand to evans auxiliary of acrylate and then stereoselective diels-alder with quite a succes

OK, I should have checked the reference.
