Iridium-Catalyzed Asymmetric Hydrogenation of Benzo[b]thiophene 1,1-Dioxides.

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2017 Apr 23;56(16):4579-4582. Epub 2017 Mar 23.
Paolo Tosatti, Andreas Pfaltz
An efficient iridium-catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of substituted benzothiophene 1,1-dioxides is described. The use of iridium complexes with chiral pyridyl phosphinite ligands provides access to highly enantiomerically enriched sulfones with substituents at the 2- and 3-position. Sulfones of this type are of interest as core structures of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Controlling the properties of lead molecules is critical in drug discovery, but sourcing large numbers of lead-like compounds for screening collections is a major challenge. A unified synthetic approach is described that enabled the synthesis of 52 diverse lead-like molecular scaffolds from a minimal set of 13 precursors. The divergent approach exploited a suite of robust, functional group-tolerant transformations.

Ir-phosphinomethyl-oxazoline complexes have been identified as efficient, highly enantioselective catalysts for the asymmetric hydrogenation of 3,3-disubstituted allylic alcohols and related homoallylic alcohols. In contrast to other N,P ligand complexes, which require weakly coordinating solvents, such as dichloromethane, these catalysts perform well in more ecofriendly THF or 2-MeTHF. Their synthetic potential was demonstrated with the formal total synthesis of four bisabolane sesquiterpenes.

Since their discovery in 1997, iridium-catalysed asymmetric allylic substitutions have been developed into a broadly applicable tool for the synthesis of chiral building blocks via C-C and C-heteroatom bond formation. The remarkable generality of these reactions and the high levels of regio- and enantioselectivity that are usually obtained in favour of the branched products have been made possible by a thorough investigation of the catalyst system and its mode of action. Therefore, today the Ir-catalysed asymmetric allylic substitution is a powerful reaction in the organic chemist's repertoire and has been used extensively for several applications.

The sequential use of Cu-catalyzed asymmetric allylic alkylation, olefin cross-metathesis, and Ir-catalyzed asymmetric allylic amination allows the concise, stereodivergent synthesis of complex chiral amines with complete regiocontrol and good diastereoselectivity, exemplified by the synthesis of a pair of diastereoisomeric unnatural branched amino acid derivatives.
