Abstract

Asymmetric allylation of ortho-methoxydiphenylmethane has been carried out with high yields and ee of up to 94% using the chiral ligand ()-sparteine as an additive. Results of reactions performed under various conditions suggest that a dynamic kinetic resolution of two rapidly interconverting diastereomeric complexes is occurring.
