Asymmetric Synthesis of N-substituted Allylic Amine Compounds

Many natural products, including pharmaceutical compounds and agrochemicals contain chiral amine functionality. Thus, the asymmetric (chiral selective) amination of olefins has received significant attention from both life science and fine chemical industries. Recently, researchers at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette have developed a novel method of asymmetric synthesis of N-substituted allylic amine compounds. And, this method offers numerous technical advantages over current asymmetric methods, including asymmetrical synthesis of N-aryl-substituted allyl amines.
