  • Patent number: 7932397
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for the synthesis of catalysts and precursors thereof. Methods of the invention may comprise combining a catalyst precursor and at least one ligand to generate a catalytically active species, often under mild conditions and in high yields. In some cases, a wide variety of catalysts may be synthesized from a single catalyst precursor. Methods of the invention may also include the preparation of catalysts which, under reaction conditions known in the art, may have been difficult or impossible to prepare and/or isolate due to, for example, steric crowding at the metal center. The present invention also provides catalyst compositions, and precursors thereof, which may be useful in various chemical reactions including olefin metathesis. In some cases, methods of the invention may reduce the number of synthetic and purification steps required to produce catalysts and/or other reaction products, as well as reducing time, cost, and waste production.

  • Patent number: 5134238
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a class of chiral copper-amine complexes of the formula R(L*) CuLi in which L* is selected from: ##STR1## In this formula, R is a transferable ligand, which can be alkyl, aryl or aralkyl. M is a metal ion such as Li, Na, K, Cs, Rb, Be, Mg and other metal ions from the first two columns of the periodic table. R.sub.1 is straight chain alkyl, R.sub.2 is aryl or substituted aryl and R.sub.3 and R.sub.4 form a heterocyclic ring or a substituted heterocyclic ring with 4 to 8 members including oxygen and sulfur.Such complexes react with .alpha.,.beta.-unsaturated ketones, aldehydes, esters and other carbonyl containing compounds such that R is transferred to the 3 position enantioselectively as shown below. ##STR2## Such complexes react with .alpha.,.beta.-unsaturated ketones in the presence of trialkysilyl halides to give silyl enol ether in which R is substituted in the 3 position as shown below.
