Abstract:An investigation of the diastereoselective $\beta$-metalation and of the structure of a carbanion of a $\beta$-phenyl tertiary amide has been carried out. The directed metalation has been found to occur with high diastereoselectivity and the resulting carbanion is best described as a pyramidal benzyllithium species based on $\sp{13}$C NMR evidence.
Secondary amides have been shown to act as directing groups for $\beta$-lithiations, and the dianion homoenolate equivalents have been shown to react with a variety of electrophiles. We have found that the remote metalations can be directed by secondary amides employing several anion stabilizing groups, and the secondary amides can undergo remote metalations when no $\alpha$-alkyl substituent is present. The rate of the directed deprotonation has been found to be dependent upon the chain length between the amide group and the anion stabilizing group. The investigation of using secondary amides as homoenolate equivalents as well as the potential and limitations of these homoenolate equivalents will be addressed.
