(Matrix presented). Palladium and platinum complexes of conformationally flexible 1,3-butadiene-bridged diphosphines NUPHOS can be resolved with (S)-BINOL at elevated temperatures to afford diastereopure δ-[(NUPHOS) M{(S)-BINOL}] (M = Pd, Pt). The homochiral Lewis acid complexes δ-[(NUPHOS)M]-[OTf]2, generated by protonation of δ-[(NUPHOS)M{(S)-BINOL}] with trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, catalyze the Diels-Alder reaction between acryloyl-N-oxazolidinones and cyclopentadiene to give ee values up to 96%. The corresponding enantiopure dichlorides δ-[(NUPHOS)PtCl2] react with AgClO4 to form highly efficient catalysts that give good endo/exo selectivities and high endo enantioselectivity.
