Abstract

The efficient and highly selective formation of a wide range of (hetero)cyclic cis-diol scaffolds using aminotriphenolate-based metal catalysts is reported. The key intermediates are cyclic carbonates, which are obtained in high yield and with high levels of diastereo- and chemoselectivity from the parent oxirane precursors and carbon dioxide. Deprotection of the carbonate structures affords synthetically useful cis-diol scaffolds with different ring sizes that incorporate various functional groups. This atom-efficient method allows the simple construction of diol synthons using inexpensive and accessible precursors and green metal catalysts and showcases the use of CO2 as a temporary protecting group. Protective Carbon: Aminotriphenolate complexes of FeIII and AlIII are highly efficient and selective catalysts for the conversion of functional (multi)cyclic oxiranes into the corresponding cis carbonates. Basic hydrolysis of the latter provides a series of useful cyclic cis-diol scaffolds in high yield. In this process, CO2 acts as both a temporary protecting group and an oxygen donor.
