Enantioselective Haloetherification by Asymmetric Opening of meso-Halonium Ions

  • February 8, 2011

A new approach to enantioselective haloetherification reactions via desymmetrization of in situ-generated meso-halonium ions is described. The combination of N-haloamides as a halogen source and sodium salts of chiral phosphoric acids as catalysts can be used for the cyclization of symmetrical ene-diol substrates, yielding the haloetherification products under practical conditions in enantioenriched form.
