The rational design of bis(oxazoline)-copper(II) catalysts based on postulated intramolecular secondary n-cation interaction for the highly enantioselective Diels-Alder reaction is presented. A theoretical calculation suggested that the n electrons of the 4,4'-sulfonamidomethyl groups successfully interact with the Cu(II) cation and that the counteranions with protons of sulfonamido groups. These secondary interactions might be essential for the high catalytic activity, the broad range of substrates, and the high level of induction of the enantioselectivity.

The O-3-pyrroline-1-carbonyl (O-Pyroc) group and 3-pyrrolinamide are useful removable protecting groups for the kinetic resolution of racemic α-hydroxycarboxylic acids, β-hydroxy-carboxylic acids, 1,2-dicarboxylic acids, and 1,2-diols using the l-histidine-derived bifunctional catalysts. The Pyroc group can be easily introduced from Pyroc chloride. Selective deprotection of the Pyroc group and 3-pyrrolinamide can be carried out via DDQ oxidation followed by hydrolysis using sodium hydroxide, without epimerization.

A catalytic enantioselective Strecker reaction catalyzed by novel chiral lanthanum(III)-binaphthyl disulfonate complexes was developed. The key to promoting the reactions was a semistoichiometric amount of AcOH or i-PrCO2H, which takes advantage of HCN generation in situ. The corresponding cyanation products were obtained in high yields and with high enantioselectivities.

The hypervalent iodine-catalyzed oxylactonization of ketocarboxylic acids to ketolactones was achieved in the presence of iodobenzene (10 mol %), p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate (20 mol %) and metachloroperbenzoic acid as a stoichiometric co-oxidant.

A highly efficient Mukaiyama aldol reaction between ketones and trimethylsilyl enolates in the presence of potassium alkoxide-crown ether complexes as Lewis base catalysts (0.3-5 mol %), which minimized the competing retro-aldol reaction, was developed. These catalysts promoted other addition reactions of trimethylsilyl reagents to ketones and aldimines, such as silyltrifluoromethylation, silylcyanation, and silylphosphonylation. A direct hydrophosphonylation of ketones also proceeded when the catalysts were used as a Bronsted base under mild reaction conditions.

Commercially available molybdenum(VI) oxides such as (NH4)2MoO4, (NH4)6Mo7O24・4H2O, MoOz(acac)2, and MoO2(TMHD)2 are highly effective dehydrative cyclization catalysts for the synthesis of a variety of oxazolines. The reaction proceeds with a complete retention of configuration at the bata-position. For the dehydrative cyclization of cysteine derivatives, bis(2-ethyl-8-quinolinolato)dioxomolybdenum(VI) shows remarkable catalytic activity and gives thiazolines without a significant loss of stereochemical integrity at the C2-exomethine positions.

Electron-donating group-substituted 2-iodoxybenzoic acids (IBXs) such as 5-Me-IBX (1g), 5-MeO-IBX (1h), and 4,5-Me2-IBX (1i) were superior to IBX 1a as catalysts for the oxidation of alcohols with Oxone (a trademark of DuPont) under nonaqueous conditions, although Oxone was almost insoluble in most organic solvents. The catalytic oxidation proceeded more rapidly and cleanly in nitromethane. Furthermore, 2-iodoxybenzenesulfonic acid (IBS, 6a) was much more active than modified IBXs. Thus, we established a highly efficient and selective method for the oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols to carbonyl compounds such as aldehydes, carboxylic acids, and ketones with Oxone in nonaqueous nitromethane, acetonitrile, or ethyl acetate in the presence of 0.05−5 mol % of 6a, which was generated in situ from 2-iodobenzenesulfonic acid (7a) or its sodium salt. Cycloalkanones could be further oxidized to α,β-cycloalkenones or lactones by controlling the amounts of Oxone under the same conditions as above. When Oxone was used under nonaqueous conditions, Oxone wastes could be removed by simple filtration. Based on theoretical calculations, we considered that the relatively ionic character of the intramolecular hypervalent iodine−OSO2 bond of IBS might lower the twisting barrier of the alkoxyperiodinane intermediate 16.
