Abstract
Enantioselective electro-epoxidation of olefins by using an optically activ e Mn-salen complex, (S,S)-N,N ' -bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)-1,2-cyc lohexanediaminomanganese(III)chloride (3), as a mediator in a CH2Cl2 aqueou s NaCl two-phase system was performed successfully in a simple undivided ce ll under constant current conditions. Optimization of the electrolysis cond itions and estimation of the reaction mechanism are discussed. (C) 2001 Els evier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
