Abstract

A novel type of chiral redox disulfonate iron complex for asymmetric catalysis is reported. The [Fe((Ra)-BINSate)]+(BINSate = 1,1′-binaphthalene-2,2′-disulfonate) complex effectively promotes the enantioselective oxidative cross-coupling between 2-naphthols (1) and 2-aminonaphthalene derivatives (2), affording optically enriched (Ra)-2-amino-2′-hydroxy-1,1′-binaphthyls (NOBINs) with exceptional yields and enantioselective ratios (up to 99% yield and 96:4 er). The [Fe((Ra)-BINSate)]+catalyst was designed as a chiral version of FeCl3with multicoordination sites available for binding the two coupling partners 1 and 2 as well as the oxidant. Our structure-selectivity and activity study, which covered most of the important positions in the NOBIN scaffold, revealed the effect of different substitution patterns on the coupling efficiency and stereoselectivity.
