Abstract

Nucleophilic addition of dialkylzincs to aldehydes in hydrocarbon solvents is markedly accelerated by the presence of a catalytic amount of a β-dialkylamino alcohol. Use of certain sterically constrained chiral amino alcohols such as 3-exo-(dimethylamino)isoborneol or 1-t-butyl-2-piperidinoethanol effects highly enantioselective catalysis giving secondary alcohols in up to 99% ee. Dimethyl-, diethyl-, di-n-butyl-, and di-n-pentyl-zincs have been employed for the alkylation of substituted benzaldehydes and some olefinic or aliphatic aldehydes. Configurational correlation between the chiral auxiliary and alkylation products is discussed.
