Enantio- and Diastereoselective Synthesis of Homoallylic α-Trifluoromethyl Amines by Catalytic Hydroalkylation of Dienes.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We describe a strategy for the enantio- and diastereoselective synthesis of homoallylic α-trifluoromethyl amines by the catalytic hydroalkylation of terminal dienes. Trifluoromethyl-substituted isatin-derived azadienolate nucleophiles undergo γ-selective alkylation with a Pd-DTBM-SEGPHOS catalyst, which additionally promotes regioselective addition to the diene and delivers products in up to 86% yield, 10:1 dr, and 97.5:2.5 er.
