Task of this thesis was the synthesis of novel chiral ionic liquids as well as their application in asymmetric C-C bond forming reactions. Synthesis of amino alcohol functionalised chiral ionic liquids was carried out according to a well established protocol starting from chiral pool derived L-amino acids and ephedrine. The successful application of these CILs in asymmetric Henry reaction is reported. Good yields and enantioselectivities could be obtained. Additionally the usage of the amino alcohol functionalised ionic liquids in asymmetric cyclopropanation of styrene is examined.
Furthermore synthesis of various chiral ionic liquids starting from L-proline is presented. These organocatalytic active ionic liquids contain a chiral secondary amine for imine-enamine activation of carbonyls. The application of organocatalytic ionic liquids in asymmetric alkylation reactions is reported.
