Enantioselective synthesis of β-fluoro-β-aryl-α-amino pentenamides by organocatalytic [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement
MetadataShow full item record
The tetramisole-promoted catalytic enantioselective [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement of quaternary ammonium salts bearing a (Z)-3-fluoro-3-arylprop-2-ene group generates, after addition of benzylamine, a range of β-fluoro-β-aryl-α-aminopentenamides containing a stereogenic tertiary fluorine substituent. Cyclic and acyclic nitrogen substituents as well as various aromatic substituents are tolerated, giving the β-fluoro-β-aryl-α-aminopentenamide products in up to 76% yield, 96:4 dr, and 98:2 er.
