Abstract

PHANE-TetraPHOS, a new D2 symmetric tetraphosphane based on the [2.2]paracyclophane scaffold, has been synthesized and characterized. The peculiarity of this system is the presence of four homotopic diphenylphosphane groups, exchangeable through C2 symmetry operations and consequently indistinguishable. Their spatial arrangement allows the simultaneous complexation of two metal atoms. Enantiomeric purity wasattained at tetra-phosphane oxide level by fractional crystallization of the diastereomeric adducts obtained from the racemate with enantiopure dibenzoyltartaric acids. Alkaline treatment ofdiastereomerically pure adducts followed by exhaustive PO groups reduction with HSiCl3 gave both PHANE-TetraPHOS antipodes in an enantiopure state. They were tested as rhodium ligands in the homogeneous enantioselective hydrogenation ofsome benchmark unsaturated compounds. Catalytic activity and enantiodiscrimination ability were found comparable tothose exhibited by the complexes of the parent bidentate ligand PHANEPHOS, but only half a mole of precious chiral ligand was employed.
