VO(salen)(X) catalysed asymmetric cyanohydrin synthesis: An unexpected influence of the nature of anion X on the catalytic activity

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Michael North, Dmitry Usanov



The nature of the anionic ligand X (X = EtOSO3, BF4, Cl, Br, OSO2CF3, F or CN) in vanadium(V)salen complexes [V+O(salen) X-] was found to have a significant influence on the catalytic activity of the complexes, but not on their enantioselectivities; with the complexes in which X = Cl or F being most active and the complex with X = OSO2CF3 being totally inactive. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2006.
