Catalytic, enantioselective, intramolecular carbosulfenylation of olefins

Scott E. Denmark, Alex Jaunet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The first catalytic, enantioselective carbosulfenylation of alkenes with an aromatic nucleophile is described, using a BINAM-based selenophosphoramide catalyst. E-Alkyl- and aryl-substituted alkenes afforded tetrahydronaphthalenes with complete diastereospecificity, and generally high enantiomeric ratios.
