A number of cyclic olefins Were prepared and evaluated for the asymmetric hydrogenation reaction using novel N,P-ligated iridium imidazote-based Catalysts (Crabtree type). The diversity of these cyclic olefins spanned those having little functionality to others bearing strongly coordinating substituents and heterocycles. Excellent enantioselectivities were observed both for substrates having little functionality (up to >99% ee) and for substrates possessing functional groups several carbons away from the olefin. Substrates having functionalities such as carboxyl groups, alcohols, or heterocycles in the vicinity of the C=C bond were hydrogenated in high enantiomeric excess (up to >99% ee). The hydrogenation was also found to be regioselective, and by controlling the reaction conditions, selective hydrogenation of one of two trisubstituted olefins can be achieved: Furthermore, trisubstituted olefins can be selectively hydrogenated in the presence of tetrasubstituted olefins.
