*Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, Faculty of Science and Technology, Tokyo University of Science, 2641 Yamazaki, Noda, Chiba 278-8510, Japan


The 1-chloro-2,5-dimethyl-1-phenyl-1-silacyclopentane was reacted with various optically active alcohols to give 1-alkoxysilacyclopentane derivatives, and some crystalline materials of the 1-alkoxysilacyclopentane derivatives could be separated from these stereoisomers for analysis by X-ray diffraction. Dimethyl-2,3-bis[(2,5-dimethyl-1-phenyl-1-silacyclopentyl)oxy]succinate and 2R-2-[(2,5-dimethyl-1-2-phenyl-1-silacyclopentyl)oxy]-1,1,2-triphenylethanol were synthesized.

Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis of (-)-Ritodrine Hydrochloride via Silyl Enol Ether Amination Using Dirhodium(II) Tetrakis[tetrafluorophthaloyl-(S)-tert-leucinate]

Masahiko Tanaka, Seiichi Nakamura, Masahiro Anada, and Shunichi Hashimoto*

*Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Hokkaido University, Sapporo 060-0812, Japan


A catalytic asymmetric synthesis of (-)-ritodrine hydrochloride was achieved, incorporating an enantioselective amination of (Z)-silyl enol ether derived from 4-benzyloxypropiophenone with [(2-nitrophenylsulfonyl)imino]phenyliodinane (NsN=IPh) and a chelation-controlled reduction of the ketone carbonyl group with Zn(BH4)2 as the key steps. The use of dirhodium(II) tetrakis[tetrafluorophthaloyl-(S)-tert-leucinate] as a catalyst produced the targeted α-amino ketone in 94% yield with 91% ee.
