Access to Chiral Seven-Member Cyclic Amines via Rh-Catalyzed Asymmetric Hydrogenation

Access to Chiral Seven-Member Cyclic Amines via Rh-Catalyzed Asymmetric Hydrogenation
Xumu Zhang, Pan Li, Xinquan Hu, Yi Huang, Xiu-Qin Dong
A highly efficient asymmetric hydrogenation of azepine/oxazepine-type seven-member cyclic imine hydrochlorides was successfully developed using Rh/bisphosphine-thiourea ligand ZhaoPhos, affording various chiral seven-member cyclic amines with full conversions, high yields, and excellent enantioselectivities (up to 96% yield, >99% ee). Additionally, this asymmetric hydrogenation can proceed well on gram scale with excellent ee value. Moreover, control experimental results displayed that the anion-bonding interaction between the chloride ion of the substrate and thiourea motif of the ZhaoPhos played an important role to obtain excellent enantioselectivity.
