Abstract

The enantioselective borohydride reduction using optically active cobalt(II) complex catalysts was successfully applied to various aryl N-diphenylphosphinyl imines, and the corresponding reduced products were obtained in good yields with high enantiomeric excesses (up to 99% ee). The optically active primary amines were obtained by the successive hydrolysis under mild conditions.
