ably expected based on the different coordination of aldehydes
and trui~simines to the boron atom in chairlike transition state
structures (cf. the two chair transition state structures in
Scheme 5 ) . However, the stereodivergence caused by the type of
thioester (COSPh vs. COStBu) in the addition to imines is quite
surprising. The stereochemical outcome can be rationalized by
using corresponding chair and boat transition structures
(Scheme 5).r1q1However, there is no obvious explanation why
this strong stereocontrol is operating as a function of R2. Experiments not reported here show that the role of the oxygen protecting group R ' is relatively minor.

Asymmetric Epoxidation of Enones With
Oxygen in the Presence of Diethylzinc and
Dieter Enders,* Jiqun Zhu, and Gerhard Raabe
The asymmetric epoxidation of C - C double bonds plays an
important role in the synthesis of optically active organic compounds. In 1980 Sharpless et al. reported the titanium-mediated
enantioselective epoxidation of allylic alkohols with tBuOOH,"!
which was later achieved catalytically by addition of molecular
sieves.[21Based on cationic salen - manganese complexes Jacobsen et aI.c3]and Katsuki et al.[4!developed an efficient method
for the enantioselective epoxidation of unfunctionalized olefins.

The asymmetric epoxidation of chalcone in high optical yields
was achieved by JuliL et al. with H,O,,"aOH
in a three-phase
system over chiral polypeptides.['I However, the success of this
method is as yet usually limited to chalcones.["l Other methods

We now report a new method for the enantioselective epoxidation of x,B-unsaturated ketones 1 with Oz in the presence of

chiral @epoxyketones ( R , S ) - 2 (Scheme 1). The epoxidation
proceeds with excellent yields (94-99%). virtually complete

change upon treatment with K,[Fe(CN),] and KSCN.["] It is
likely that 4 is the species that actually epoxidizes the x,/f-unsaturated ketones asymmetrically. In the epoxidation process the
oxygen of the carbonyl function first coordinates the zinc atom
in 4, with concomitant attack of the ethylperoxy anion in /j-position to form the intermediate 5. This reaction constitutes a
Michael-type addition. The subsequent cyclization gives the
epoxyketone 2 and 6.["1 In this way. rran-epoxides are exclusively formed from (E)-x,/j-unsaturated ketones (de > 99
Since the reaction rate strongly decreases upon introduction of
voluminous groups adjacent to the carbonyl function (see 2f.
2g). the formation of 5 is probably the rate-determining step.
Upon hydrolysis of 6 the chiral amino alcohol is formed, which
can be virtually quantitatively recovered with unchanged enantioineric purity (Scheme 2).

The epoxidation, which is carried out as a "one-pot" reaction
probably proceeds as follows:[141Firstly. ethyl zinc alkoxide 3 is
formed from diethylzinc and the chiral aIcohol.[lslThe expected
evolution o f a gas (ethane) was observed. The substitution of the
second ethyl group by an alkoxy ligand is very slow. Therefore,
insertion of O2into the Zn -C bond between the remaining ethyl
hgand and the zinc atom is preferred.["' In the course of this
process the chirally modified alkoxy(ethy1peroxy)zinc 4 is
formed. The measurement of the absorption of oxygen by a
solution of 3 in toluene at room temperature gave a value of
25.8 mL (1.06 mmol). According to the Van der Waals equation
absorption of 26.9 mL 0, was expected for 1.1 inmol 3. After
removal of the solvent in vacuo, 4 remained as a colorless powder. Upon addition of 4 to an aqueous Fe" solution, oxidation
The substituents R' in /$position have only a slight influence
on the enantioselectivity. Only the phenyl group leads to a significant decrease in the enantiomeric excess (see 2e). In the
scope of this work 35 chiral alcohols such as (Sf-l-phenylethanol. (R,R)-N-ethylpseudoephedrine. ( - )-menthol, ( - )8-phenylmenthol, (S)-2,3-dimethyl-1.3-dioxolan-4-methanol,

tr.cir7.s-(R.S)configuration of the epoxyketones 2) can be explained by means of the transition states A or B with R or S
configuration at the zinc atom. respectively. which are depicted
in Figure 1. In this picturc the chiral alkoxy(ethy1peroxy)zinc4
attacks the .xi face of the s-cis conformation of the ( E )enones in
the fashion of a n oxa-Michael addition. Transition state A
shows particularly well that the steric hindrance between R ' and
the phenyl Sroup as well as the interaction between R2 and the
dimethylamino group, which are caused by a rotation of the
enone plane by 180 ', significantly impedes the attack at the re
face of the enone.
The zinc his-alkoxide 7 was obtained by the reaction of two
equivalents of (R,R)-N-methylpseudoephedrine with diethylzinc in pentane (Scheme 3). However, 7 does not react with the
enones 1 under standard conditions. As can be seen from Figure 2. the zinc bis-alkoxide 7 exists as a dimer in the solid

structure of a chiral zinc bis-aminoalkoxide.
This new method for the zinc-mediated asymmetric epoxidation of r,P-unsaturated ketones opens an efficient diastereo- and
enantioselective access to trans-configured r,B-epoxyketones.
The use of the cheap chemicals 0 , and Et2Zn as well as the
possibility of recovering the employed chiral additive quantitatively makes this method interesting also in terms of industrial
applications. Further work on the optimization of the method
and extension to other electron-deficient alkenes is underway,12zl

formation of sodium nitridonitrate.
At a temperature between 300 and 400 "C,Na,O does indeed
take up an equimolar amount of N,O. According to the X-ray
powder diagrams the reaction goes to completion (no Na,O
reflections were detected), and the elemental analysis confirms
the expected composition Na,N,O, .I3] The colorless, extremely
moisture-sensitive product is obtained as microcrystals. It is
thermally stable up to 325 "C; above this temperature quantitative disproportionation occurs with N, cleavage and formation
of "sodium orthonitrite" [Eq. (a)].[41

Neither by annealing (due to the low decomposition temperature) nor by recrystallization (due to the insolubility in aprotic
solvents and the decomposition in protic solvents) was it possible to obtain single crystals of Na,N,O, . The proof of its constitution was therefore undertaken by a crystal structure determination from X-ray powder data without using any a priori
knowledge[s1 and confirmed spectroscopically (lSN MASN M R , vibrational spectroscopy).
According to the results of the X-ray structure analysis
(Fig. l),I6] the product of the reaction of N,O with Na,O is

The family of triatomic molecular 16-electron species has attained an impressive size. Previous studies on these molecules o r
molecular ions have concentrated on their preparation and
structural and spectroscopic characterization."] Their electronic
structures correspond to a large extent and should, as a result,
lead to similar chemical behavior-an aspect that has previously
been given scant regard with respect to their use in synthesis.
The central atom, being generally positively polarized, should
function as a Lewis acid center. This behavior is well-known for
CO,, but otherwise only described for CS, .lZl Novel interesting
tetraatomic complex anions should be accessible by the addition
of oxide, nitride, or sulfide ions, for example. To test this idea we
studied the effect of laughing gas (N,O) on Na,O, which-if the

unequivocally confirmed for the first time. The bond lengths of
the cis-hyponitrite ion of 1.20(3) (N 1 -N2), 1.40(3) (N 1 - 0 l),
and 1.39(3) 8, (N 2 - 0 2) correspond approximately to those of
a N - N double bond (1.1 5 A) and two N -0 single bonds
(1.408,).['1 The bond angles of 119.8(4) ( 0 1 - N l - N 2 ) and

( 0 1 - N 1 - N 2 - 0 2 ) of0.6(3)", cis-N,O:- is, within the limits
of error, planar. The anion has C , site symmetry; the measured
deviations from the highest possible symmetry (point group C2J

atoms can be considered as chemically equivalent, which would
agree with the point groups C,, or C , for cis-N,O:-. The vibrational spectra show a clear splitting of all significant peaks,
which in accordance with a point or factor group analysis is to
be expected (Table 1). Interestingly in this case, the vibrational
