Abstract

A 1:1 mixture of [P(t-Bu)(2)-o-biphenyl]AuCl and AgSbF6 catalyzes the Intermolecular amination of allylic alcohols with 1-methylimidazolidin-2-one and related nucleophiles that, in the case of gamma-unsubstituted or gamma-methyl-substituted allylic alcohols, occurs with high gamma-regloselectivity and syn-stereoselectivity.

Research in the Widenhoefer group is directed toward the development and mechanistic analysis of new organotransition metal-catalyzed transformations for application in the synthesis of functionalized organic molecules. In particular, our group has a long-standing interest in the functionalization of C–C multiple bonds with carbon and heteroatom nucleophiles catalyzed by electrophilic late transition metal complexes, with a recent focus on the synthetic and mechanistic aspect of gold(I) pi-activation catalysis. Current areas of inquiry include the following:

  1. Gold(I) and Pt(II)-catalyzed hydroamination of alkenes an allenes.
  2. Gold(I)-catalyzed dehydrative amination of underivatized allylic alcohols.
  3. Synthesis and study of cationic, two-coordinate gold pi-complexes.
  4. Evaluating the role of bis(gold) complexes in gold pi-activation catalysis.

More detailed descriptions of these research projects can be found at our group web page.
