Abstract

The current report contributes to the understanding of the stereoselectivity of chiral dirhodium(II) carboxylate catalysts carrying N-protected tert-leucine ligands. Investigating the possible effect of ligand stereo-purity on catalyst structure and enantioselectivity was carried out. This was justified through a new X-ray crystal structure for Rh2(S,S,S,R-PTTL)4 diastereomer.
