The α-effect in iminium ion catalysis

Cavill, Julie L., Elliott, Richard L., Evans, Gareth James S., Jones, Ian L., Platts, James Alexis, Ruda, Antonio M. and Tomkinson, Nicholas Charles Oliver 2006. The α-effect in iminium ion catalysis. Tetrahedron 62 (2-3) , pp. 410-421. 10.1016/j.tet.2005.08.110

The ?-effect can be used as an effective means to promote iminium ion catalysed transformations, providing acyclic scaffolds to aid in catalyst design. A thorough investigation of the structure–activity relationship of the catalyst architecture reveals optimal substituents of a disubstituted carbamate and a secondary alkyl group around a hydrazine scaffold. Molecular modelling investigations provide a mechanistic rationale to the results observed.
