Abstract: Lithium diphenylbinaphtholate catalyzed the enantioselective Evans-Tishchenko reduction of achiral b-hydroxyketones to afford monoacyl-protected 1,3-diols with high stereoselectivities. In the reaction of racemic b-hydroxyketones, kinetic optical resolution occurred in a highly stereoselective manner.
Keywords: Evans-Tishchenko reduction; lithium binaphtholate; b-hydroxyketone; 1,3-diol; enantioselectivity
