Abstract

A conformational search method based on the density functional theory (DFT) was successfully applied to explore a mechanism for the highly enantioselective alkylation by binaphthyl-modifed chiral phase-transfer catalysts. Key interactions that govern the enantioselectivity were analyzed. The computational results are encouraging for further application of the DFT-based conformational search toward the rational design of next-generation asymmetric phase transfer catalysts.
