AbstractHow can high enantioselectivity be achieved when the racemic background reaction proceeds at a rate comparable to that of the catalytic asymmetric reaction? We attempted to rationalize this counterin-tuitive observation by studying the effect of (1) catalyst structure, (2) temperature and addition sequence of components, (3) catalyst loading, and (4) Bronsted acid additives. In the course of our investigation, it was found that increasing the amount of catalyst used led to inhibition of the stoichiometric reaction. Olefinic 1,3-diol 1, 5 mol % of catalyst 3a, 1 equiv of MsOH, and NBS were added at low temperature in a specific sequence to provide the best performance for the enantioselective bromoetherification.
