- The asymmetric α-allylation of 3-pentanone using several different N-amino cyclic carbamate (ACC) auxiliaries is described. The level of asymmetric induction was found to range from er = 93:7 to er = 99:1. The factors that lead to compromised selectivity for the various auxiliaries have been determined. Significantly, we have established that using the easily accessible and inexpensive valine-derived ACC auxiliary, it is possible to obtain synthetically useful levels of asymmetric induction (er = 96:4).
