Abstract: Bis(oxazolinyl)phenylrhodium(III) aqua complexes, (Phebox)RhX2(H2O) [X = Cl, Br], were found to be efficient Lewis acid catalysts for the enantioselective addition of allyl- and methallyltributyltin reagents to amino aldehydes. The reactions proceed smoothly in the presence of 5–10 mol % of (Phebox)RhX2(H2O) complex at ambient temperature to give the corresponding amino alcohols with modest to good enantioselectivity (up to 94% ee).
Keywords: allylation; amino aldehydes; Lewis acids; pincer ligands; rhodium
