A 17-membered diaza-diphospha- and a 21-membered diaza-dioxadiphospha-macrocycle (6) and (12), respectively, including the inherent chiral binaphthyl moiety were synthesized. Titanium(IV) mediated cyclization of 1,1’-binaphthyl-2,2’-dicarbaldehyde (4) with 1,3-bis[(2-aminophenyl)phenylphosphino]propane (8) and subsequent reduction afforded 6a-c as a mixture of three diastereomers in 14% overall yield. Ligand (12) was obtained from the nickel amido complex of 8 and 2,2’-bis[2-(4-toluene)sulfonyloxyethoxy]-1,1’-binaphthyl (10a) by a template synthesis in the presence of Cs2CO3 in 63% yield. X-Ray structure determinations of cationic Ni(II) complexes of 6a and 12 were performed.
