The synthesis of planar chiral [2.2]metacyclophanes has been readily accomplished in a single synthetic step via the directed ortho metalation of a pro-chiral substituted metacyclophane.

Abstract

The synthesis of planar chiral [2.2]metacyclophanes has been readily accomplished in a single synthetic step via the directed ortho metalation of a pro-chiral substituted metacyclophane. The use of (−)-menthyl chloroformate as a chiral auxiliary allows the introduction of the useful carbonyl functional group into the aryl ring, giving access to carboxy-substituted diastereomeric mixture of planar chiral [2.2]metacyclophanes. The separation of diastereoisomers has been easily accomplished by semipreparative HPLC, allowing the structural analysis of a single diastereoisomer by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. The structural features of the planar chiral metacyclophanes and their high inversion barriers, determined at 473 K, encourage future investigations as chiral catalysts and ligands. This synthetic route complements our previously reported enantioselective synthesis avoiding the restrictive use of (−)-sparteine as the chiral inducer.
