Preparation Of A Chiral Cu(II)-Schiff Base Complex And Application For Asymmetric Catalysis

Leman Alkan

Abstract


A chiral copper(II)-Schiff base complex was synthesized from L-Phenylalanine for the enantioselective Henry reaction. A variety of chiral β-nitroalcohols were obtained in good yield (up to 76%) with high enantioselectivities (up to 90% ee) under the optimized reaction conditions.
