Chiral BINOL-derived pyrophosphoric acid catalysts were developed and used for the regio- and enantioselective aza-Friedel–Crafts reaction of phenols with aldimines. ortho/para-Directing phenols could react at the para-position selectively with moderate to good enantioselectivities. Moreover, the gram-scale transformation of a product into the key intermediate for the antifungal agent (R)-bifonazole was demonstrated.

Chiral C2- and C1-symmetric BINOL-derived bis(phosphoric acid) catalysts, which have OP(=O)(OH)2/OP(=O)(OH)(OR) moieties at the 2,2’-positions, were developed and used for the enantioselective aza-Friedel–Crafts reaction of 2-methoxyfuran with α-ketimino esters for the first time. The intramolecular conjugated double hydrogen bond network is a key to increasing the Brønsted acidity and preventing deactivation of the catalysts. Highly functionalized α-amino acid derivatives with a chiral quaternary carbon center could be transformed into versatile optically active N- and O-heterocycles and an α-aryl-substituted serine.

Proton challenge: BBr3‐assisted chiral phosphoric acid catalysts were used for the enantioselective [2+2] cycloaddition of vinyl sulfides with acroleins. One of the obtained [2+2] cycloadducts could be readily transformed to a key intermediate for (+)‐frontalin as a pheromone of Asian elephants.

Environmentally benign metal-free tetramethylammonium methyl carbonate is effective as a catalyst for the chemoselective, scalable, and reusable transesterification of various esters and alcohols in common organic solvents. In situ-generated highly active species, tetramethylammonium alkoxides, can greatly avoid the self-decomposition at ≤110 °C, and reusable. In particular, chelating substrates, such as amino alcohols, diols, triols, sugar derivatives, alkaloids, α-amino acid esters, etc., which deactivate conventional metal salt catalysts, can be used. A 100 gram scale biodiesel production was also demonstrated.

Enantioselective Aza-Friedel-Crafts Reaction of Indoles with Ketimines Catalyzed by Chiral Potassium Binaphthyldisulfonates

The enantioselective aza-Friedel–Crafts reaction of indoles with low-reactive ketimines has been developed in the presence of a chiral monopotassium binaphthyldisulfonate as a strong Brønsted acid catalyst. A broad substrate scope was achieved, and the corresponding 3-indolylmethanamines with a chiral quaternary carbon center were obtained in high yields with high enantioselectivities. The addition of a catalytic amount of acetic acid considerably promoted the reaction, and a gram-scale reaction could be achieved with reduced catalyst loading.
