Mechanism of Nakamura’s Bisphosphine Iron-Catalyzed Asymmetric C(sp2)-C(sp3) Cross-Coupling Reaction: The Role of Spin in

Controlling Arylation Pathway

Lee, W.; Zhou, J.; Gutierrez, O.

Abstract: Quantum mechanical calculations are employed to investigate the mechanism and origin of stereoinduction in asymmetric iron-catalyzed C(sp2)-C(sp3) cross-coupling reaction between Grignard reagents and α-chloroesters. A coherent mechanistic picture of this transformation and model for stereoinduction is revealed. These results have broad implications for understanding the mechanisms of iron-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions and rational design of novel iron-based catalysts for asymmetric                             transformations
