Application of N,S-Chelating chiral Zinc bis(Arenthiolate) Complexes as New Precursor Catalysts in the Enantioselective Addition of diethylzinc to Aldehydes

By G. van Koten, E. Rijnberg, J.T.B.H. Jastrzebski, M.D. Janssen and J. Boersma


The addition of diethylzinc to aldehydes in the presence of a catalytic amount of enantiomerically pure N, S-chelated bis{2-[(R)-1-(dimethylamino)ethyl]phenylthiolato}zinc, afforded the corresponding secondary alcohols in nearly quantitative yields with optical purities of up to 99 % e.e. under mild reaction conditions
