Abstract

Diels Alder cycloaddition/oxygen-atom-extrusion provides the means to unite two naphthylene fragments and affords a highly functionalized, racemic binaphthyl iodide. Resolution of a derived thiol then furnishes, after appropriate manipulation, enantiomerically pure binaphthyldisulfide precatalysts.
