Three new chiral Mn macrocycle catalysts containing 20 or 40 atoms in the macrocycle were synthetized and tested in the enantioselective epoxidation of cis-β-ethyl-styrene and 1,2-dihydronathalene. The effect of the presence of a binaphtol (BINOL) compound in the catalyst backbone has been evaluated, including by Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations.

Abstract

Three new chiral Mn macrocycle catalysts containing 20 or 40 atoms in the macrocycle were synthetized and tested in the enantioselective epoxidation of cis-β-ethyl-styrene and 1,2-dihydronathalene. The effect of the presence of a binaphtol (BINOL) compound in the catalyst backbone has been evaluated, including by Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations.
