The first diastereospecific and enantioselective epoxidation of trans-2-aroyl-3-arylacrylonitriles by means of the commercially available diaryl L-prolinol/tert-butyl hydroperoxide system has been developed.

Abstract

The first diastereospecific and enantioselective epoxidation of trans-2-aroyl-3-arylacrylonitriles by means of the commercially available diaryl L-prolinol/tert-butyl hydroperoxide system has been developed. These diversely functionalized epoxides were obtained in excellent yield (up to 99%), complete diastereoselectivity for the trans isomer, and good enantioselectivity (up to 84% ee). Highly enantioenriched epoxides can be easily obtained after a single crystallization (ee > 90%).
