Abstract in another language

Two novel tricyclic 1,3,2-oxazaborolidines were synthesized in seven steps from methyl Boc-l-pyroglutamate. They are characterized by an ortho- and peri-fused 5/5/6-ring system with the B–N bond forming one ring junction. In the asymmetric borane reduction of ketones, the B-alkoxy bridged derivative permits excellent enantioselectivities of up to 98% ee and its activity is comparable to that of the standard CBS catalyst. The closely related, B-alkyl bridged derivative is less enantioselective and less active, as determined by competition experiments.
