Abstract

The amine has landed! By employing the rhodium catalyst [Rh 2(esp)2] in the presence of a readily available amine source (DPH), unactivated and styrene-type olefins can now be stereospecifally transformed, in high yields at room temperature, into valuable NH aziridine products. esp=α,α,α?,α?-tetramethyl-1,3- benzenedipropionic acid.
