Research subject summary 【 display / non-display

  • Transition metal-catalyzed functionalization of aromatic compounds via C-H bond activation has realized the step-economy synthesis of useful compounds. In particular, an ortho-selective functionalization has been achieved by use of directing groups, and in the past few decades, many catalytic systems for the C-H bond activation have been developed. We are interested in development of atom-economical organic transformations to realize stereoselective synthesis of useful organic molecules.

     View Summary

    <p>Annulation of α,β-unsaturated amides with electron-deficient 1,3-dienes gave 5,6-dihydropyridin-2(1<i>H</i>)-ones in the presence of a hydroxoiridium catalyst. The reaction proceeded via direct C–H alkylation of acrylamides with conjugated dienes, followed by intramolecular aza-Michael addition, thus giving dihydropyridinones stereoselectively in good yields.</p>

     View Summary

    We have developed Rh-catalyzed arylation methods by use of arylboron reagents for the synthesis of chiral compounds having a stereogenic carbon center that is substituted with aryl groups. The use of chiral diene ligands base on a tetrafluorobenzobarrelene (tfb) framework was found to be effective in catalyzing the arylation reaction with high enantioselectivity. It was also found that Ir-catalyzed annulation of aromatic imines with 1,3-dienes or alkynes proceeds via C-H bond activation with high stereoselectivity.

     View Summary

    We have developed new chiral diene ligands base on tetrafluorobenzobarrelene(tfb) framework. Their rhodium complexes displayed high catalytic activity and enantioselectivity in the addition of arylboron reagents to unsaturated bonds. Iridium/chiral tfb complexes were also found to display high catalytic activity in the asymmetric 1, 6-addition of arylboroxines to dienones giving the corresponding addition products in high yields with high enantioselectivity.

     View Summary

    One of the most important subjects in studying asymmetric catalysis is development of new chiral ligands which have both high catalytic activity and high enantioselectivity. We have successfully developed an entirely new type of chiral ligands which have olefins as coordinating functionalities to metal catalysts. Among them, chiral diene ligands showed great performance in terms of both catalytic activity and enantioselectivity in rhodium- and iridium-catalyzed asymmetric carbon-carbon bond forming reactions.
