    Addition reactions to imines are relatively less developed compared to those of carbonyl compounds due to low electrophilicity and ease of a-deprotonation. With the use of an appropriate activator, which can coordinate to the imine nitrogen atom, the electrophilicity of the imine can be enhanced...

    In this work, we describe the asymmetric synthesis of a series of fluorinated and non-fluorinated quaternary α-amino acid derivatives. This methodology involves the diastereoselective addition of chiral 2- p-tolylsulfinyl benzylcarbanions to either imines containing a 2-furyl moiety or...

    A density functional theoretical (DFT) study has been carried out at the B3LYP/6-31G(d) level on the gas-phase retro-ene reaction of allyl methyl amine (AMN). The results were compared with single point calculations at a high level of the theory, using the G3MP2 method. Two mechanisms for this...

  • Recent Developments in Asymmetric Alkynylation of Imines. Blay, G.; Monleón, A.; Pedro, J. R. // Current Organic Chemistry;Oct2009, Vol. 13 Issue 15, p1498 

    This review deals with the asymmetric alkynylation of imines (and iminium ions) to give chiral nonracemic propargylamines. Diastereoselective procedures involved the addition of metal alkynylides to chiral nonracemic imines derived from chiral amines or chiral carbonyl compounds....

  • A NADPH-dependent ( S)-imine reductase (SIR) from Streptomyces sp. GF3546 for asymmetric synthesis of optically active amines: purification, characterization, gene cloning, and expression. Mitsukura, Koichi; Kuramoto, Tatsuya; Yoshida, Toyokazu; Kimoto, Norihiro; Yamamoto, Hiroaki; Nagasawa, Toru // Applied Microbiology & Biotechnology;Sep2013, Vol. 97 Issue 18, p8079 

    A NADPH-dependent ( S)-imine reductase (SIR) was purified to be homogeneous from the cell-free extract of Streptomyces sp. GF3546. SIR appeared to be a homodimer protein with subunits of 30.5 kDa based on SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and HPLC gel filtration. It also catalyzed the (...

    Hydrolysis of diastereomerically pure N-sulfinyl α-amino-1,3-dithianes with 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethylhydantoin gives N-tosyl α-amino aldehydes which when subjected to a Pinnick-type oxidation gave N-tosyl α-amino acids without epimerization.

    Optically active aziridines were synthesized from the reaction of chiral nonracemic N-tert-butanesulfinyl imines with benzyl-stabilized sulfur ylides, wherein the latter were generated from a rhodium-catalyzed decomposition of phenyldiazomethane (PDM) in the presence of various sulfides. In most...

  • The Application of Chiral Oxazolidinethiones and Thiazolidinethiones in Asymmetric Synthesis. Velazquez, Francisco; Olivo, Horacio F. // Current Organic Chemistry;Apr2002, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p303 

    Oxazolidinethiones and thiazolidinethiones constitute a class of versatile chiral auxiliaries for asymmetric synthesis. Their easy preparation from readily available �-amino-alcohols and the high levels of asymmetric induction they provide make them excellent chiral auxiliaries useful for...
