Quantum Chemical Methods to Elucidate the Mechanism of a Diastereoselective Insertion-Addition Reaction of a Chiral Titanium (IV)-Schiff Base-Benzyl Complex with Hydroxyketones

, , ,
We present our preliminary results on the quantum chemical studies carried out to elucidate the diastereoselective insertion-addition reaction of a chiral titanium(IV)-Schiff base-benzyl complex (I) with hydroxyketones (II) to form the diastereoselective insertion product (III) [...]
