Abstract

A ruthenium-catalyzed asymmetric arylation of aliphatic aldehydes and α-ketoesters with arylboronic acids has been developed, giving chiral alkyl(aryl)methanols and α-hydroxy esters in good yields. The use of a chiral bidentate phosphoramidite ligand (Me-BIPAM) achieved excellent enantioselectivities.
Keywords: asymmetric catalyst; bidentate phosphoramidite ligand; ruthenium catalyzed arylation asymmetric catalyst; bidentate phosphoramidite ligand; ruthenium catalyzed arylation
