The Pd-catalysed asymmetric allylic alkylation reactions of sulfamidate imines
The Pd-catalysed asymmetric allylic alkylation (Pd-AAA) of prochiral enamide anions derived from 5H-oxathiazole 2,2-dioxides has been developed. Various 4,5-disubstituted and 4-substituted cyclic sulfamidate imines have participated in the transformation with a range of allyl carbonates - as well as 2-vinyl oxirane, 2-vinyl-N-tosylaziridine, and 2-vinyl-1,1-cyclopropane dicarboxylate - to furnish the desired C-allylated products in moderate to high yields, with high regioselectivites and generally high enantioselectivities. Conversion between N- and C-allyl products was observed, with the N-allylated products converting to the C-allylated products over time. The resulting high-value allylated heterocyclic products all bear a tetrasubstituted stereogenic centre and can be reduced to an allylated chiral sulfamidate or an amino alcohol.
