Enantioselective Hydroamination

Jérôme Hannedouche (CR CNRS), Emmanuelle Schulz (DR CNRS), Stéphane Germain (PhD student)

This research lies in the development of convenient methods for the facile and rapid preparation of chiral organometallic catalysts based on rare-earth or alkali elements for the catalytic and enantioselective formation of C-N bond by addition of N-H bond onto an unactivated alkene. The determination of the catalyst structure and the application of these new methodologies to the enantoselective synthesis of high value-added nitrogen-heterocycles are our main concerns.
