Abstract :
Chemoselectivity in the methylalumination reaction of unsymmetrical ethers, amines, and sulfides bearing two different terminal alkenyl groups, a 13-tetradecenyl group and an allyl, 4-pentenyl or 6-heptenyl group was examined. The methylalumination of the allyl derivatives proceeded with complete chemoselectivity to afford only the 13-tetradecenyl-monomethylated products. In the methylalumination reactions of the 4-pentenyl and the 6-heptenyl derivatives, in addition to the 13-tetradecenyl-monomethylated products, and dimethylated products were also obtained. However, as in the case of the allyl derivatives, monomethylation to the shorter 4-pentenyl or 6-heptenyl group was not observed, except in the case of 6-heptenyl 13-tetradecenyl amine. The unique selectivity was rationalized upon how readily the intramolecular ligand exchange reaction between intermediate zirconocenium–alkene and zirconocenium–heteroatom complexes could occur.
