Chemical Information
2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(4-nitrobenzylidene)ethanamine (MNR42-1) - SMILES: O=[N+]([O-])C1=CC=C(/C=N/CCC2=CC(OC)=C(OC)C=C2)C=C1, InChI: InChI=1S/C17H18N2O4/c1-22-16-8-5-13(11-17(16)23-2)9-10-18-12-14-3-6-15(7-4-14)19(20)21/h3-8,11-12H,9-10H2,1-2H3/b18-12-, InChIKey: LMBMXYXQVBPKHJ-PDGQHHTCSA-N.
1-(6,7-dimethoxy-1-(4-nitrophenyl)-3,4-dihydroisoquinolin-2(1H)-yl)ethanone (KAB26-18) - SMILES: O=[N+]([O-])C1=CC=C(C2N(C(C)=O)CCC3=CC(OC)=C(OC)C=C32)C=C1, InChI: InChI=1S/C19H20N2O5/c1-12(22)20-9-8-14-10-17(25-2)18(26-3)11-16(14)19(20)13-4-6-15(7-5-13)21(23)24/h4-7,10-11,19H,8-9H2,1-3H3, InChIKey: OIFIJKJQAGAGKY-UHFFFAOYSA-N.
(S)-[1,1'-binaphthalene]-2,2'-diol ((S)-BINOL) - SMILES: OC1=[C@]([C@]2=C(C=CC=C3)C3=CC=C2O)C4=CC=CC=C4C=C1, InChI: InChI=1S/C20H14O2/c21-17-11-9-13-5-1-3-7-15(13)19(17)20-16-8-4-2-6-14(16)10-12-18(20)22/h1-12,21-22H, InChIKey: PPTXVXKCQZKFBN-UHFFFAOYSA-N.

NOTE: All THF was dried over microwave activated 3 Å molecular sieves (2.0-2.5 mm) >72 h prior to use. All acetonitrile was dried over microwave 3 Å molecular sieves (2.0-2.5 mm) >24 h prior to use.[1] All glassware used was dried overnight at 115 °C.

Catalyst Solution Preparation
(S)-[1,1'-binaphthalene]-2,2'-diol (28 mg, 0.097 mmol, 3 equiv.) and Yb(OTf)3 (0.020 mg, 0.032 mmol, 1 equiv.) were dissolved in dried THF (0.5 mL) to give a chiral catalyst solution of 64 mM.

To a mixture of 4 Å molecular sieves (~1.5 g) in MeCN (16 mL) was dissolved MNR42-1 (100 mg, 0.318 mmol, 1 equiv.). The mixture was cooled in an acetone ice bath (-10 °C) before the addition of acetyl chloride (0.04 mL, 0.6 mmol, 1.8 equiv.) and 2,6-lutidine (0.06 mL, 0.5 mmol, 1.6 equiv.). Yb(OTf)3/(S)-BINOL/THF (0.25 mL, 0.016 mmol, 0.05 equiv.) was added. The reaction mixture was allowed to warm to 25 °C and stirred under argon from 09:00.
After 2 hours, the reaction mixture was diluted with EtOAc (15 mL). The mixture was washed with saturated sodium bicarbonate solution (15 mL). The organic layer was separated. The aqueous layer was extracted with EtOAc (3 × 15 mL). The organic layers were combined, dried (MgSO4) and concentrated under reduced pressure to yield crude KAB26-18 as a yellow solid (167 mg, 143%).
