Abstract

Reversal of enantioface selectivity was observed by merely switching the solvent from CH2Cl2 (enantiomer ratio of the adduct = 91:9) to THF (14:86) in the asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction catalyzed by the aluminum complex of a newly prepared chiral menthol derivative. Negative nonlinear effect on the relationship between enantiomeric excesses of the reaction product and optical purities of the ligand was observed for the reaction in CH2Cl2 whilst linear relationship for that in THF.
