PNNP Macrocycles: A New Class of Ligands for Asymmetric Catalysis
datasetposted on 09.03.2009 by Marco Ranocchiari, Antonio Mezzetti
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We report the first examples of enantiomerically pure P2N2 macrocycles containing either a diimino (1a) or diamino donor set, as well as their ruthenium(II) dichloro complexes. Unexpectedly, the diimino derivative 2a is a more efficient catalyst in the transfer hydrogenation of acetophenone than its diamino analogue.
