Title: Organometallic complexes of bulky, optically active, C 3-symmetric tris(4 S-isopropyl-5,5-dimethyl-2-oxazolinyl)phenylborate (To P*)

A bulky, optically active monoanionic scorpionate ligand, tris(4S-isopropyl-5,5-dimethyl-2-oxazolinyl)phenylborate (To P*), is synthesized from the naturally occurring amino acid l-valine as its lithium salt, Li[To P*] (1). That compound is readily converted to the thallium complex Tl[To P*] (2) and to the acid derivative H[To P*] (3). Group 7 tricarbonyl complexes To P*M(CO) 3 (M = Mn (4), Re (5)) are synthesized by the reaction of MBr(CO) 5 and Li[To P*] and are crystallographically characterized. The ν CO bands in their infrared spectra indicate that π back-donation in the rhenium compounds is greater with To P* than with non-methylated tris(4S-isopropyl-2-oxazolinyl)phenylborate (To P). The reaction of H[To P*] and ZnEt 2 gives To P*ZnEt (6), while To P*ZnCl (7) is synthesized from Li[To P*] and ZnCl 2. The reaction of To P*ZnCl and KOtBu followed by addition of PhSiH 3 provides the zinc hydride complex To P*ZnH (8). In this study, compound 8 is the first example of a crystallographically characterized optically active zinc hydride. We tested its catalytic reactivity in the cross-dehydrocoupling of silanes and alcohols, which provided Si-chiral silanes with moderate enantioselectivity.
