Abstract: Polyphenylalkane derivatives Q 0720Rhodium-Catalyzed Conjugate Addition-Enantioselective Protonation: The Synthesis of α,α'-Dibenzyl Esters. -α-Substituted tert-butyl acrylates are efficient substrates for a tandem rhodium-catalyzed conjugate addition-enantioselective protonation process. The method tolerates a variety of reactive functional groups on both substrate and boronic acid to deliver highly functionalized products. -(FROST*, C. G.; PENROSE, S. D.; LAMBSHEAD, K.; RAITHBY, P. R.; WARREN, J. E.; GLEAVE…
