Abstract

{(+) (1S.2S)-2-Amino-1-phenyl-13-propanediol reacts with ortho-esters to form 4-hydroxymethyl-5-phenyl-1,3-oxazolines. Subsequent reaction of their toluenesulfonyl derivatives with diphenylphosphinolithium yields the N,P-ligands, (4S,5S)-2-R-4-diphenylphosphinomethyl-5-phenyl- 1.3-oxazoline (R = Me, Et, Ph). X-ray analyses of (4S,5S)-2-methyl-4-toluenesulfonylmethyl-5-phenyl- 1,3-oxazoline and (4S,5S)-2,5-diphenyl-4-diphenylphosphinomethyl-1,3-oxazoline reveal retention of absolute configuration throughout the synthesis. The [Ir(COD)(N,P-oxazoline)]PF6 systems in CH2Cl2 effect catalytic hydrogenation of N-(1 -phenylethylidene)benzylamine
