Iridium-Catalyzed Enantioselective Hydrogenation of Vinylsilanes

Iridium-Catalyzed Enantioselective Hydrogenation of Vinylsilanes
Maurizio Bernasconi, Aie Wang, Andreas Pfaltz
The front cover picture, provided by Aie Wang, Maurizio Bernasconi, and Andreas Pfaltz, illustrates the potential of chiral iridium N,P-ligand complexes as catalysts for the asymmetric hydrogenation of vinylsilanes. Wide ranges of trisubstituted and disubstituted terminal vinylsilanes bearing aryl, alkyl, carboethoxy, or hydroxymethyl substituents were converted into chiral silanes with high enantioselectivity. In addition to trimethylsilyl and dimethyl(phenyl)silyl derivatives, trialkoxysilyl- and silacyclobutyl-substituted alkenes were used as substrates. Details can be found in the communication on pages XXXX–XXXX (A. Wang, M. Bernasconi, A. Pfaltz, Adv. Synth. Catal. 2017, 359, XXXX–XXXX; DOI 10.1002/adsc.201700162).
