Titanium(IV)(salen) and yanadium(V)(salen) complexes derived from C 2- and C1-symmetric diamines for asymmetric cyanohydrin synthesis

Lookup NU author(s): Jamie Hunt, Professor Michael North



Titanium and vanadium salen complexes have been prepared from C 2- and C1-symmetric acyclic diamines. All of the complexes catalysed the asymmetric addition of trimethylsilyl cyanide to benzaldehyde and the sense of asymmetric induction was determined by the nature of the substituents. The vanadium complex of a valine-derived diamine gave good results with a range of aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes. © Georg Thieme Verlag Stuttgart.
