A library of bench-stable planar-chiral 1,11-dioxa[11]paracyclophane-derived phosphoramidites was synthesized by a three step procedure: enantioselective ortho-lithiation, reductive amination and coupling with phosphorochloridites. The efficacy of these phosphoramidite as chiral ligands was tested in the Pd-catalyzed allylic alkylation of dimethyl malonate and the Cu-catalyzed ethylation of chalcone under the reported conditions, with moderate enantioselectivity being obtained.
