Abstract

Abstract l-Amino acids as inexpensive and readily available natural products showed significant chiral induction and stereo-directing abilities. The Mn(III)-Schiff-base complexes 3b and c assembled with l-amino acid ethyl esters were found to be highly effective catalysts for the enantioselective epoxidation of conjugated olefins while the corresponding binuclear-Mn(III) complexes showed lower enantioselectivity.
