Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
The enantio- and regioselective reductive hydroarylation
of N-acyl enamines has been achieved with a NiH catalyst and a
chiral bis-imidazoline ligand. A broad range of structurally diverse,
enantioenriched benzylamines, a moiety found in many
pharmacologically active molecules, have been synthesized
efficiently under mild, operationally simple reaction conditions.
