Abstract

Vanadium catalysts bearing (+)-ketopinic acid-based chiral hydroxamic acids as constituent ligands are investigated in the asymmetric epoxidation of allylic alcohols. Chiral ligands lacking an N-substituent and those having a bulkier aryl group in the bornane skeleton provided better selectivity.
