Abstract

A small library of chiral imidate-ferrocenylphosphane ligands was efficiently synthesized (8 examples) and evaluated in the iridium(I)-catalyzed hydrogenation of unfunctionalized and poorly functionalized olefins. These catalysts perform very well in a range of examples (yields and ee’s up to 100%).
