Abstract

Bisphenol ligands have a rich coordination chemistry in the early transition elements. 1,1′-Bi-2-naphthols are of particular interest because of their continued utility in controlling the stereochemistry of metal catalyzed processes. In several projects in our laboratory, we have endeavored to examine the potential scope and mechanism by which modifications of bisphenolate ligands can influence the stereoselectivity of electrocyclic reactions. In this paper we discuss two of these studies: an examination of stereochemically modified ROMP precatalysts and a study of well characterized binaphtholate titanium chloride Lewis acid catalysts.
