Synthesis of Axially Chiral Biaryls by Atropo ..

N2 - In the presence of a catalytic amount of Pd2+ or Pd0, oxidative homo-coupling of arylzinc compounds was achieved by the use of N-chlorosuccinimide (NCS) or O2 as an oxidant. Different reaction pathways were involved in the catalytic reactions depending on the oxidants; NCS or O2 probably oxidized I- or Pd0 to I+ or Pd2+, respectively. This reaction disclosed a new and facile synthetic method of biaryls from aryl halides or arenes via arylzinc intermediates.

It was found that Biaryls synthesized compounds showed appreciate antioxidant ..

The direct and selective synthesis of phenols from aryl/heteroaryl halides and KOH has been achieved through the use of highly active monophosphine-based catalysts derived from Pd2dba3 and ligands L1 or L2 and the biphasic solvent system 1,4-dioxane/H2O. We have also demonstrated a one-pot method of phenol formation/alkylation for the preparation of alkyl aryl ethers from aryl halides. In many instances, this protocol overcomes limitations in existing Pd-catalyzed coupling reactions of aliphatic alcohols with aryl halides. Finally, we demonstrate that substituted benzofurans can be prepared efficiently via a Pd-catalyzed phenol formation/cyclization protocol starting from 2-chloroaryl alkynes.

The synthetic value of these alcoholysis reactions for asymmetric biaryl synthesis is illustrated by the transformation of 5 into a broad series of enantiopure biaryls of type 6 with various functional groups ortho to the axis.">
