tereoselective C C bond-forming reactions are of particular importance for
the preparation of enantiopure natural
compounds and pharmaceuticals. The
wide variety of available chiral auxiliaries, reagents, and catalysts nowadays
enables the generation of tertiary stereocenters in most cases without any
difficulty. However, the approach to
complex compounds with quaternary
stereocenters is still a challenge for
synthetic organic chemists, and every
enantioselective procedure in which a
fully substituted carbon center is constructed is of value.[1]
The Michael reaction, the conjugated or 1,4-addition of enolates to acceptor-substituted olefins, is a fundamental
C C-coupling reaction, which is catalyzed not only by Brønsted bases,[2] but
also by a number of metal compounds.[3]
An important breakthrough in the field
of extensively investigated metal-catalyzed, enantioselective Michael reactions[4] was recently reported by Sodeoka and co-workers.[5] For the first time,
quaternary stereocenters could be generated with > 90 % ee at a relatively
high temperature of 20 8C in a Michael
reaction of b-dicarbonyl compounds 1
with enones 2 using palladium(ii) as the
catalytically active transition metal. The
PdII–diaquadiphosphane complexes 3 a
and 3 b are formed with chiral ligands

ly. Scheme 1 shows four typical reaction
products 4 a–d as examples.
Both cyclic (1 a) and acyclic (1 b) bketoesters react with methyl vinyl ketone (2 a) at 20 8C in a Michael reaction promoted by 3 a to give the corresponding products 4 a and 4 b in moderate to good yields with > 90 % ee. Noteworthy is the use of the sterically
demanding tert-butyl and phenyl b-ketoesters. The conversion of b-diketone
1 c (X = CH2Ar) in the presence of
catalyst 3 b (10 mol %) at 10 8C is an
outstanding example of an asymmetric
Michael addition to acyclic triketones
such as 4 c with very high stereoselectivity, an achievement thus far not reported
in the literature. Furthermore, the reaction of 1 d with substituted enone 2 b
catalyzed by 3 b at 20 8C affords a
mixture of two diastereoisomers (d.r. =
8:1), and an enantiomeric excess of 99 %
for the major diastereomer of 4 d.
The high efficiency of the method
developed by Sodeoka and co-workers
is clearly demonstrated in view of the
work published so far: In 1975 Wynberg
and co-workers applied cinchona alkaloids in base-catalyzed, enantioselective
Michael reactions.[6] About 10 years later, the first of these reactions catalyzed
by a transition metal, cobalt, was published by Brunner and Hammer.[7] Both
methods result in quaternary stereocenters with up to 68 % ee, which was
improved in the following years by
Desimoni et al. to 75 % ee.[8] The introduction of rhodium catalysts in 1992 by
Ito and co-workers in Michael reactions
of a-methyl-substituted cyanoacetates
and vinyl ketones or acrolein represented an important breakthrough in this
field. The catalyst was generated in situ
from the chiral ligand 2,2’’-bis[1-(diphenylphosphanyl)ethyl]-1,1’’-biferrocene

efforts resulted in the so-called linkedbinol system 6 b (Scheme 3), which
combines all the desired attributes.[14, 15]
For the synthesis of tertiary stereocenters, this
type of catalyst is almost
optimal with regard to
handling, and reuse. However, as exemplified in

a-Amino acid amides were introduced recently as efficient auxiliaries for
copper-catalyzed Michael reactions. In
the presence of a catalytic amount of
Cu(OAc)2·H2O, enamines such as 7 b
react with simple vinyl ketones 2 a at
ambient temperature in acetone as the
solvent, yielding the product with selectivities of up to 99 % ee after acidic
hydrolysis.[19] The auxiliaries, readily
available from natural a-amino acids,
can be recovered almost quantitatively
after workup. As proved in the synthesis
of bicyclic compound 8 starting from
piperidone derivative 7 b (Scheme 5),
the copper-catalyzed Michael reaction
is compatible with substrates bearing
donor functions, for example, a carbamate moiety, and is therefore superior to
the lanthanide-catalyzed procedure of
Shibasaki and co-workers.[20]
