-032Regio-and Enantioselective Cyclization of Epoxy Alcohols Catalyzed by a [Co III (salen)] Complex.-Reaction of epoxy alcohols in the presence of a Co(III)-salen complex proceeds with excellent asymmetric induction to furnish novel cyclic and bicyclic ethers (up to seven-membered rings) in high optical purity. The method can be used for the kinetic resolution of racemic epoxy alcohols (I) as well as for the desymmetrization of meso su…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
