Abstract

A palladium-catalyzed asymmetric arylation of cyclic N-sulfonyl ketimine esters is described. The desired products could be prepared with excellent yields (up to 99%) and enantioselectivities (up to 99% ee) under mild reaction conditions. Furthermore, a possible reaction mechanism was determined using DFT calculations.
