Abstract

Chiral C2-symmetric quaterpyridine L reacts with [Pd(η3-C3H5)Cl]2 to form a chiral single-stranded helical binuclear palladium complex of formula [Pd 23-C3H5)2(L)] 2+; the complex can efficiently catalyze allylic substitution of 1,3-diphenylprop-2-enyl acetate with dimethyl malonate with enantioselectivity up to 85%. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2006.
