Catalytic, Asymmetric, Bromine-induced Semipinacol Rearrangements at Unactivated Double Bonds

  • December 1, 2011

A new catalyst system for the enantioselective bromine-induced semipinacol rearrangement of cyclic allylic alcohols is described. Using the commercially available (DHQD)2Pyr catalyst the products containing an all-carbon quaternary chiral centre can be obtained in good yield and high enantioselectivity.
