Three new chiral Mn macrocycle catalysts containing 20 or 40 atoms in the macrocycle were synthetized and tested in the enantioselective epoxidation of cis-β-ethyl-styrene and 1,2-dihydronathalene.

Abstract

Three new chiral Mn macrocycle catalysts containing 20 or 40 atoms in the macrocycle were synthetized and tested in the enantioselective epoxidation of cis-β-ethyl-styrene and 1,2-dihydronathalene. The effect of the presence of a binaphtol (BINOL) compound in the catalyst backbone has been evaluated, including by Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations.
