Abstract

The atriopo-enantioselective ring-opening of biaryl lactones with methanol was catalyzed by an optically active AgBF 4-phosphine complex to afford axially chiral biaryl compounds. The addition of triisobutylamine provided a dramatic rate acceleration in the reaction. Various types of axially chiral biaryl compounds were obtained with high enantioselectivity.
