Bifunctional Bronsted base-assisted boronic acid catalysts, arylboronic acids bearing two sterically bulky (N,Ndialkylamino) methyl groups at the 2,6-positions, exhibit remarkable activities for the dehydrative intramolecular condensation of dicarboxylic acids. The steric bulkiness of the (N,N-dialkylamino)methyl groups of 1, which prevents the formation of less active species such as the N-B chelated species and triarylboroxines 3, is crucial for the high catalytic activity. This is the first successful method for the catalytic dehydrative self-condensation of di- and tetracarboxylic acids.

Swapped selectivities: The use of tailor-made catalysts results in anomalous endo/exo selectivities and high enantioselectivities in the Diels-Alder reactions of cyclopentadiene with different acroleins (see scheme). These supramolecular catalysts are prepared in situ from chiral diols, arylboronic acid, and tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane, and can discriminate the re/si face of the dienophile as well as the endo/exo approach of the diene.

The desymmetrization of meso-glycerol derivatives bearing a 3-pyrroline-1-carbonyl (Pyroc) directing group is demonstrated through an enantioselective acylation reaction promoted by L-histidine-derived bifunctional catalysts. The desired monoacylated products are obtained in good yields (up to 74%) with high enantioselectivities (up to 99% ee).

A highly practical, catalytic enantioselective alkyl and aryl addition to aldehydes and ketones with organozinc reagents, which were prepared in situ from commercially available Grignard reagents or arylboronic acids, was developed. A chiral phosphoramide ligand was essential for promoting the addition reactions in high yields with high enantioselectivities.

Chiral Lewis base-assisted Bronsted acids (Chiral LBBAs) have been designed as new organocatalysts for biomimetic enantioselective cyclization. A salt of a chiral phosphonous acid diester with FSO3H catalyzes the enantioselective cyclization of 2-geranylphenols to give the desired trans-fused cyclized products with high diastereo- and enantioselectivities (up to 98:2 dr and 93% ee).

It's the iodine: The intra- and intermolecular title reaction is catalyzed by an in situ generated ammonium (hypo)iodite species. Either H2O2 or tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) can be used as an environmentally benign oxidant and a wide range of substrates react to give the corresponding alpha-acyloxycarbonyl compounds in good to excellent yields.

A catalytic enantioselective Friedel-Crafts aminoalkylation between aromatic aldimines and N-benzylpyrrole with the use of a homogeneous chiral ammonium salt, (R)-BINSA-N,N-dimethylbutylamine, as a dynamic Bronsted acid-Bronsted base catalyst, is reported. Unlike the results with conventional catalysts, remarkably high reactivity was established at -78 C within 30 minutes, and the corresponding aryl(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)methanamines were obtained with good to high enantioselectivities.

Neat Et2Zn, Ph2Zn, and highly concentrated Me2Zn are highly reactive organozinc reagents, which are commercially available in bulk quantities. We here report a catalytic enantioselective Et2Zn, Ph2Zn, and Me2Zn addition to ketones and aldehydes under solvent free or highly concentrated conditions without Ti(Oi-Pr)4 as a conventional activator of organozinc reagents. The desired optically active tertiary and secondary alcohols were obtained in good yield with high enantioselectivity when compared to the conventional solvent-use conditions. From the viewpoint of ecological and environmental reasons in green chemistry, this catalysis would be practical for not only academic but also industrial use.

Brønsted base-assisted boronic acid catalysis for the dehydrative self-condensation of carboxylic acids is described. Arylboronic acid bearing bulky (N,N-dialkylamino)methyl groups at the 2,6-positions can catalyze the intramolecular dehydrative condensation of di- and tetracarboxylic acids. This is the first successful method for the catalytic dehydrative self-condensation of carboxylic acids.

Very recently, we developed the first enantioselective oxidative cycloetherification of ketophenols to 2-acyl- 2,3-dihydrobenzofuran derivatives catalysed by in situgenerated chiral quaternary ammonium (hypo)iodite with hydrogen peroxide or tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as an environmentally benign ideal oxidant. The optically active 2-acyl 2,3-dihydrobenzofuran skeleton is a key structure in several medicinally and biologically active compounds.

A practical transesterification of less reactive dimethyl carbonate and much less reactive methyl carbamates with primary (1°), secondary (2°), and tertiary (3°) alcohols was established with the use of a lanthanum(III) complex, which was prepared in situ from lanthanum(III) isopropoxide (3 mol %) and 2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethanol (6 mol %). In particular, corresponding carbonates and carbamates obtained were of synthetic utility from the viewpoint of the selective protection and/or deprotection of 1°-, 2°-, and 3°-alcohols.

The transesterification of an equimolar mixture of carboxylic esters and primary (1°), secondary (2°), and tertiary (3°) alcohols in hydrocarbon solvents was promoted with high efficiency by a lanthanum(III) complex, which was prepared in situ from lanthanum(III) isopropoxide (1 mol %) and 2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethanol (2 mol %). The present La(III) catalyst was highly effective for the chemoselective transesterification in the presence of competitive 1°- and 2°-amines. Remarkably, esters were obtained in good to excellent yields as colorless materials without an inconvenient workup procedure.
