Mechanistic studies clarifying how chiral primary amines control the stereochemistry of vinylogous processes are rare. We report a density functional theory (DFT) computational study for the comprehension of the reaction mechanism of the vinylogous atroposelective desymmetrization of N-(2-t-butylaryl)maleimide catalyzed by 9-amino(9-deoxy)epi-quinine. Our results illustrate how the origin of the atroposelectivity was realized by the catalyst through steric and dispersion interactions. The role of N-Boc-l-Ph-glycine was crucial for the formation of a closed transition-state geometry and the activation of both reaction partners.

Abstract

Mechanistic studies clarifying how chiral primary amines control the stereochemistry of vinylogous processes are rare. We report a density functional theory (DFT) computational study for the comprehension of the reaction mechanism of the vinylogous atroposelective desymmetrization of N-(2-t-butylaryl)maleimide catalyzed by 9-amino(9-deoxy)epi-quinine. Our results illustrate how the origin of the atroposelectivity was realized by the catalyst through steric and dispersion interactions. The role of N-Boc-l-Ph-glycine was crucial for the formation of a closed transition-state geometry and the activation of both reaction partners.
