Atroposelective Electrophilic Sulfenylation of N‐Aryl Aminoquinone Derivatives Catalyzed by Chiral SPINOL‐Derived Sulfide

Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt

Atroposelective electrophilic sulfenylation of N-aryl aminoquinone derivatives catalyzed by a new chiral SPINOL-derived sulfide has been achieved. Axially chiral sulfur-containing diarylamine derivatives were obtained in moderate to excellent yields with moderate to excellent enantioselectivities. The intramolecular N−H⋅⋅⋅S hydrogen bond is a key parameter for the stability of the C−N axis. DFT calculations revealed the origin of atroposelectivity.


Abstract

Atroposelective electrophilic sulfenylation of N-aryl aminoquinone derivatives has been achieved for the first time. This transformation is enabled by a new chiral 6,6′-disubstituted SPINOL-derived sulfide catalyst, which was first synthesized and then successfully explored for catalyzing enantioselective reactions. Various axially chiral sulfur-containing diarylamine derivatives were readily obtained in moderate to excellent yields with moderate to excellent enantioselectivities. A class of relatively flexible stereogenic C−N axes was easily constructed. The experimental results and a computational study suggested that an intramolecular N−H⋅⋅⋅S hydrogen bond is important for the stability of the C−N axis, which is consistent with our hypothesis. Density functional theory calculations revealed the origin of atroposelectivity and underscored the importance of catalyst rigidity in this sulfenylation reaction.
