Origin of the diastereoselectivity of the heterogeneous hydrogenation of a substituted indolizine
MetadataShow full item record
In this work, the stereoselective heterogeneous hydrogenation of a tetrasubstituted indolizine was studied. Partial hydrogenation products were obtained in three steps from a substituted pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde prepared from commercial pyridoxine hydrochloride. The hydrogenation of the indolizine ring was shown to be diastereoselective, forming trans-6b and cis-9. Theoretical calculations (ab initio and DFT) were used to rationalize the unusual trans stereoselectivity for 6b, and a keto–enol tautomerism under kinetic control has been proposed as the source of diastereoselectivity.
