Abstract

PEPPSI complexes incorporating chiral N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands based on 2,2-dimethyl-1-(o-substituted aryl)propan-1-amines were synthesized. Two complexes, with one saturated and one unsaturated NHC ligand, were structurally characterized. The chiral PEPPSI complexes were used in asymmetric Suzuki-Miyaura reactions, giving atropisomeric biaryl products in modest to good enantiomeric ratios. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
