General description

MacMillan imidazolidinone organocatalysts are metal-free chiral catalysts widely used in enantioselective organic transformations. These organocatalysts are non-toxic, low cost, and robust in simple reaction conditions because of their insensitivity to air and moisture.


MacMillan Imidazolidinone organocatalysts can be used to catalyze various organocatalytic transformation reactions such as 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions, Diels–Alder reaction, Friedel-Crafts alkylations, α-chlorinations, α-fluorinations, and intramolecular Michael reactions to access a high level of enantioselective products. It can also be used in enantioselective photocatalytic reactions, hydride reduction, and Mukaiyama-Michael reaction.
