Abstract [en]

A highly efficient aldehyde-olefin metathesis catalyzed by the carbocation, 4-phenylphenyl-diphenylmethylium ion has been developed. This protocol is characterized by high yields, low catalyst loading (down to 2 mol%), good functional group compatibility and mild reaction conditions.

Abstract [en]

The most common view of carbocations in organic chemistry is that they are short-lived intermediates in several fundamental reactions, e.g. the classic SN1-reaction. However, carbocations that can delocalize their positive charge can be stable enough to be isolated and used as Lewis acid catalysts, phase transfer catalysts or oxidants in various reactions. The theme of this thesis concerns applying trityl cations as Lewis acid catalysts in different organic reactions. The first chapter presents a general introduction of the field of Lewis acids, the characteristics and applications of carbocations in different organic reactions, and the aims of this thesis. The second chapter describes the carbocation-catalyzed asymmetric Diels–Alder reactions assisted by chiral counteranions. The third chapter shows that carbocations can be utilized as catalysts in oxa-Diels–Alder reactions with unactivated aldehydes and dienes as substrates. The fourth chapter investigates the application of carbocation catalysis in bromination reactions for selective functionalization at the benzylic position and on the aromatic ring, respectively. The fifth chapter highlights that carbocation-catalyzed aldehyde–olefin metathesis reactions can be achieved in high yields by suppressing the decomposition of both starting materials and products.
