Palladium(II)-Catalyzed Intramolecular Diamination of Alkynes under Aerobic Oxidative Conditions: Catalytic Turnover of an Iodide Ion

Activated: The title reaction proceeds efficiently with 1 mol % of palladium and gives tetrahydroquinolines in excellent enantioselectivities (see scheme). The enantiodiscriminating concerted metalation-deprotonation step occurs via a rare seven-membered palladacycle. The cyclopropyl-substituted tetrahydroquinolines can be regioselectively and enantiospecifically reduced to chiral tetrahydrobenzoazepines. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
