The macroscopic properties of self-organizing systems are
strongly governed by the molecular structure of their constituent
units. Nevertheless, in many cases the same supramolecular
structures can be constructed with a wide variety of building
blocks. In particular, hexagonal columnar mesophases (&) are
formed by various molecular structures."] The constituent unit of
the liquid-crystalline phase may consist of relatively rigid macromolecules with flexible side chains, for example poly(dialky1silane) or substituted poly(glutamate)s.[2
In addition, diskshaped molecules exhibit predominantly this type of columnar
arrangement (discotic hexagonal columnar mesophases, Dh).[61
Macrocyclic oligoamines (azacrowns) can also act as such central
cores, provided that the conformational dynamics of the macrocycle is reduced by N-acylation with aromatic acidsL7- '] or by
complexation with transition metal ions."'. l 3 l In general, the

stability of the columnar mesophase formed by these molecules
decreases with increasing ring size and thus increasing flexibility.
Recently even open chain N-acylated oligoamines of comparable structure were found to exhibit liquid-crystalline phases.[l4J

poly(ethy1enimine) 3 was not expected to exhibit mesomorphic
Nevertheless, an enantiotropic liquid-crystalline phase was
detected for the polymer 3. Slow cooling from the isotropic phase
into the mesophase gave a texture characteristic for hexagonal
mesophases with homeotropic regions. This texture is remarkably similar to those of the low molecular weight compounds 1
and 2. In addition, preliminary studies on contact preparations
show miscibility of 2 and 3 over the whole concentration range
within the LC state, which indicates that both compounds have
the same mesophase structure.

In the oligoamide 2, the open-chain analogue of 1, the intrinsic
discoid structure is lost. Nevertheless, a monotropic mesophase
of presumably hexagonal columnar structure can be found as
indicated by polarization microscopy and differential scanning
calorimetry (DSC) . This mesophase formation can, in principle,
be explained by intramolecular hydrogen bonds between the
terminal amide units which provide a disklike molecular conformation in the open-chain compound 2, too.[141The higher conformational flexibility of this system relative to that of macrocycle 1 is reflected by the monotropic nature of the mesophase.
The formation of hexagonal columnar mesophases by N-acylated oligoamines is therefore not restricted to macrocyclic, and
thus intrinsic discoid, structures. In longer open-chain polymeric amides a discoid conformation by intramolecular hydrogen

Finally, as the constituent unit is identical in the polymeric
and the low molecular weight compounds, the described systems
bridge the gap between classical discotic mesophases (that is.
hexagonal columnar mesophases formed by disk-shaped molecules) and thermotropic liquid-crystalline columnar phases
formed by linear polymers.

molecular structure, in the open-chain oligoamide 2 this geometry can perhaps be achieved by means of hydrogen bonding.
Conclusions about the molecular arrangement of the polymer 3
are speculative. However, based on the same mesophase behavior of the compounds under discussion, a possible molecular
structure of the polymer could consist of a helical polymeric
main chain (Fig. 6) radially surrounded by the side chains. This
view is supported by the larger intercolumnar distance of the
polymer 3 relative to that of the azacrown derivative 1; for an
extended polymer chain a smaller distance was expected.
Although the structure of 3 is not necessarily perfectly helical,
the system may resemble that of poly-L-glutamates with long
alkyl chain substituents, for which hexagonal columnar mesophases have indeed been observed.1201However, whereas in the
synthetic polypeptide the unsubstituted polymeric chain is helical.
in the substituted poly(ethy1enimine) 3 the formation of a helical
structure of the main chain may be solely induced by the steric
requirements of the 3,4-bisdecyloxybenzoyl substituents.1211
side group has thus an important structural influence on the
polymeric main chain, since the hexagonal columnar structure is
in striking contrast to the lamellar structures that have been observed in linear poly(ethy1enimines) acylated with benzoyl derivatives,['?. 231

C,-Symmetric Cationic Copper(r1) Complexes
as Chiral Lewis Acids: Counterion Effects in the
Enantioselective Diels-Alder Reaction**

Roger D. Norcross, and S c o t t J. Miller
We have recently documented the utility of chiral bis(oxazoline)copper(n) complexes I (oxazoline = dihydrooxazole) in the
catalysis of asymmetric group transfer reactions such as cyclo41 In addition, we have
propanation[" *I and a~iridination.1~.
demonstrated that the C,-symmetric bis(oxazoline)copper(rI)
triflate complex 1 a (triflate = trifluoromethanesulfonate = OTf)
is also capable of functioning as an effective chiral Lewis acid in
the Diels-Alder reaction with two-point binding N-acylimide
In an effort to broaden the utility of Lewis acidic
chiral Cu" complexes, we have prepared Cu" complexes with
tridentate bis(oxazolinyl)pyridiner6] (pybox) ligands, [Cull(pybox)X,] (2) and probed their reactivity as chiral Lewis acids
(Scheme 1 ) . In conjunction with this investigation, we have uncovered dramatic counterion effects that strongly influence the
reactivity of these Lewis acids. In this communication, we document the scope of these catalysts in enantioselective Diels-Alder
reactions with unsaturated aldehyde and imide-derived dienophiles.
We began with an investigation of [Cu"(pybox)] complexes
which we anticipated would possess a preferred square-planar
coordination geometry with a single accessible coordination site
for carbonyl-derived dienophiles such as a,P-unsaturated aldehydes. Indeed, we have found that [Cu"(pybox)] complexes 2
serve as effective chiral Lewis acids with aldehyde-derived
dienophiles. For example, the cycloaddition of methacrolein
with cyclopentadiene catalyzed by (pybox)Cu(OTf), (2a)
( 5 mol%, CH,CI,, - 20 "C) afforded the desired cycloadducts

(120 h) were required for complete conversion.
In an effort to increase catalyst reactivity, the cationic complexes 2b-2d were preparedr6]and evaluated. As illustrated in
Figure 1, a large counterion effect was observed in these reactions.
For example, the cycloaddition of methacrolein with cyclopen-

as a function of the reaction time [h] for the
Diels-Alder reaction of methacrolein with cyclopentadiene catalyzed by 2 at
tadiene that required 120 hours for complete conversion with
catalyst 2 a (X = OTf) was complete in 8 hours with catalyst 2d
(X = SbF,). This comparison reveals that the counterion structure dramatically affects catalyst efficiency and that the "noncoordinating" counterions SbF,, PF,, and BF,, strongly differ
in degree of interaction with the Lewis acidic Cu" center.[*'
From the results of the preceding study, the cationic
(pybox)Cu(SbF,), complex (2 d) was determined to be the catalyst of choice, and its optimized performance in the Diels-Alder
reactions of cyclopentadiene with representative aldehyde
dienophiles is given in Table 1 . The tert-butyl ligand 2 was originally chosen in analogy with the acrylimide results and provides
enantioselectivities comparable to those reported in the literat ~ r e .Importantly,
we have also found that the (S)-benzyl-pybox ligand, derived from L-phenylalanine, provides comparable
