Chiral Perazamacrocycles: Synthesis and Applications. Part 1

[ Vol. 6 , Issue. 2 ]


D. Savoia and A. Gualandi   Pages 102 - 118 ( 17 )


Chiral non-racemic perazamacrocyles containing three or more nitrogen atoms in the form of different functions (amine, amide, imine) are prepared from optically active amines, diamines, α-aminoacids, and their derivatives, by properly selected methodologies. The many applications of these optically pure perazamacrocycles rely on the basic and/or hydrogen bond donor properties of the nitrogen functions and include metal ions coordination, supramolecular chemistry, material science, molecular and enantioselective recognition, and asymmetric catalysis.
