Dynamic Kinetic Protonation of
Racemic Allenylmetal Species for the
Asymmetric Synthesis of Allenic Esters
Koichi Mikami* and Akihiro Yoshida
van? Hoff predicted the existence of chiral allenyl species in
1875.['] Since then, much attention has been paid to the asymmetric synthesis of allenic acids and esters in particular because
they constitute an important class of natural products and synthetic intermediates.['] The first optically active allenes synthesized, (+)- and (-)-1,3-diphenyl-1,3-di(1-naphthyl)allene, were
obtained, though in quite a low enantiomer excess (ee), by
asymmetric dehydration of 1,3-diphenyl-l,3-di( 1-naphthy1)prop-2-en-1-01 with (+ )- and (-)-camphor-10-sulfonic acid,
respectively.[31Subsequent asymmetric syntheses of allenes were
mainly based on chirality transfer from a chiral center to the
allene axis and optical resolution. Optical resolution of allenic
acids was reported through crystallization of the salts of natural
alkaloids such as brucine, which has a yield of 50% at best.[41

transmission. We describe here the asymmetric synthesis of allenic esters by enantiomer selective protonation of racemic allenylmetal compounds[g1by deracemization without chirality
transfer or "destruction" of the allenyl enantiomer. This dynamic kinetic resolution["] by asymmetric protonation,'"] in
other words dynamic kinetic protonation, is a powerful strategy
for the asymmetric synthesis of allenic compounds from racemic
allenylmetal species.
o-Allenyl- and o-propargylpalladium(1r) complexes[121are
mainly used in reactions with nucleophiles such as alkylmagnesium and -zinc reagents, hydrides, carbon monoxide, and mal~ n a t e s . ~Recently,
Inanaga and we reported["] on the umpol~ n g ~of' ~allenyl-/propargylpalladium(II)
complexes to give
nucleophilic species by reduction with samarium@) iodide."
This strategy was used to effect the highly regioselective reaction
of secondary propargylic phosphates with proton sources or
ketones to provide allenes rather than acetylenes. Here we
report the results of the dynamic kinetic protonation and deracemization of racemic allenylsamarium(I1I) intermediates with
Pdo/SmI, and a chiral proton source.
For the asymmetric synthesis of a-allenic esters, the chirality
transfer reaction was first attempted with an optically active
propargylic phosphate in the presence of Pdo/Sm1, and an achiral alcohol. For this purpose the chiral propargylic phosphate 1
was prepared from a conjugated ~ n a l [ ' ~by] asymmetric carbony1-ene reaction catalyzed by a binaphthol-derived chiral
titanium complex[' *I followed by phosphorylation (Scheme l),
The Pdo-catalyzed reduction of 1 with SmI, in the presence of
1.1 equivalents of the achiral rut-butyl alcohol as a proton
source was attempted. The allenic product 2
was obtained without any contaminating
acetylenic product and surprisingly in
racemic form since rapid racemization occurred before protonation. This result suggests the possibility of the dynamic kinetic
protonation of allenylsamarium(Irr) species
using chiral proton sources even when
racemic phosphates serve as starting compounds (Scheme 2).

The dynamic kinetic protonation of the racemic propargylic
phosphate 1 was examined with various chiral proton sources
(Scheme 3, Table 1). The reactions with (R,R)-(
+ )-hydrobenzoin (entry 5, Table 1) and (R)-(
-)-pantola~tone['~](entry 6,
Table 1) provided allenic ester 2 regioselectively with high enantiomeric purity and reasonably high yield ( > 50 O h ) . The absolute configuration of 2 was deduced by application of the LoweBrewster rulef4]to be (R)because the compound is levorotatory
at the sodium D line. The result thus obtained is the first example of the asymmetric synthesis of allene derivatives by selective protonation of one enantiomer without destruction of the
other. The selective protonation by the (R,R)-diol to provide the
-)-allenic ester is in agreement with the proposed transition state model (Scheme 4), in which steric repulsion between
the alkyl groups in the allenylsamarium(II1) species and in the
chiral proton source
plays a key role.

Univalent derivatives of Group 13 metals with organic ligands have attracted considerable attention by virtue of their
synthetic potential and the teasing problems of aggregation and
structure that they pose.['] The first such gallium compounds[GaCp]['I (Cp = C,H,) and [Ga,{C(SiMe,),),]r31- were not
synthesized and authenticated until 1992. The pentamethylcyclopendadienyl ligand (Cp*), known for its stabilizing ability,
yields more or less robust derivatives [MCp*] (M = Al,14]Ga,'']
In,[,] or TI[']), which all vaporize as monomers with MC,,
skeletons of C,, symmetry (M = A1,I8]Ga,[91In,',] or Tl["]). In
the solid state the aluminum compound is a tetramer based on
a central Al, tetrahedron with comparatively short AI-A1
edges.[,] The indium compound is made up of "hexamers" incorporating near-octahedral In, units with long In-In edges,161

We succeeded in growing a single crystal, not from a solution,
but by cooling a molten sample of the pure, freshly condensed
material" in a rigorously preconditioned, Pyrex-glass capillary at about f 4 " C . Under these conditions, the oil affords
colorless crystals that belong to the trigonal space group R3
with 18 GaCp* units in the hexagonal "triple cell";['21 solid
[GaCp*] is thus isomorphous with [InCp*]I,[. The structure of
this gallium compound at 200 K consists of discrete hexameric
aggregates composed of a Ga, core enclosed by a shell of Cp*
ligands (Figure 1). The Ga, unit is not strictly octahedral but
compressed along a C, axis to give two distinct Ga, units; the
Ga . . . Ga distances within and between these units are 417.3(3)
and 407.3(2) pm, respectively (indicating a larger distortion
than in [In,Cp*,],[61 d(1n-.-In)= 396.3(1) and 394.2(1) pm).
The individual GaCp* units of the hexamer show $-coordination of the Cp* ligands; Ga-C distances range from 238.0(9) to
242.1(9) pm (average 240.0 pm), which gives a Ga-centroid distance of 208.1 pm. The corresponding dimensions for the
monomer, as determined by electron diffraction of the vapor
at 60 "C, are d(Ga-C) = 240.5(4) and d(Ga-centroid) =
208.1(5) ~ m . ' As
~ ] in the case of solid [ I ~ C P * ] ,the
[ ~ ~Ga-centroid vectors do not point towards the center of the hexameric
cluster but are tilted significantly towards the faces of the cluster
( S , symmetry). By contrast, the Al-centroid vectors of the tetramer [Al,Cp*,] point towards the center of the Al, tetrahedron.',]
The orientation of the Cp* ligands with respect to the M, core
of [M,Cp*,] (M = Ga or In) is consistent with a second-order
