A diastereo- and enantioselective approach to access chiral CF2-functionalized aziridines from phenylsulfone difluorodiazoethane (PhSO2CF2CHN2) and in-situ formed aldimines is described. This multicomponent reaction is enabled by a combined strong Brønsted acid catalytic platform consisting of a chiral disulfonimide and 2-carboxyphenylboronic acid. The optical purity of obtained CF2-aziridines could be further improved by a practical dissolution-filtration procedure.
Keywords: difluoromethyl compounds; aziridines; fluorinated diazo reagents; chiral disulfonimides; strong Brønsted acids
