Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates to the compositions 3-alkylated-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols and certain 3,3′-dialkylated-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols and to processes for making 3-alkylated-, and 3,3′-dialkylated-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols, generally. [0001]
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Phosphorous-based ligands are useful as part of the catalyst system in industrially important reactions such as hydroformylation and hydrocyanation. The useful ligands include phosphines, phosphinites, phosphonites, and phosphites. See PCT patent applications WO 99/06146 and WO 99/62855. Both mono(phosphorous) ligands and bis(phosphorous) ligands are utilized in the art. Mono(phosphorous) ligands are compounds that contain a single phosphorus atom which serves as a donor to a transition metal, while bis(phosphorus) ligands, in general, contain two phosphorus donor atoms and typically form cyclic chelate structures with transition metals. [0002]
  • Processes for the preparation of 3,3′-dialkyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols, unlike their 3-alkyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′, 8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol analogs, appear in the literature. One such process, disclosed in J. Chem. Soc., C 1971, 23, teaches the preparation of 3,3′-di-t-butyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols by the coupling of 3-t-butyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-2-naphthol using potassium ferricyanide and FeCl[0003] 3-based methods with yields of only 25% and 6%, respectively. Also disclosed is the coupling of 3-t-butyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-2-naphthol to give 3,3′-di-t-butyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol can be carried out with a large excess MnO2 (20 times in weight).
  • Another process, disclosed in Acta Chem. Scand. 1970, 24, 580, teaches the coupling of 3,4-dimethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-2-naphthol to give 3,3′,4,4′-tetramethyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with 43% yield. J. Org. Chem. 1978, 43, 1930 discloses the preparation of 3,3′-dimethyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol by LiAlH[0004] 4 reduction of 3,3′-di(bromomethyl)-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol.
  • There has been no report in the prior art regarding acid catalyzed alkylation of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol to produce 3-alkyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols or 3,3′-dialkyl-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols. Acid catalyzed alkylation of phenols is known. For example, U.S. Pat. No. 4,912,264 discloses heteropoly acid catalyzed phenol and naphthol alkylation. U.S. Pat. No. 2,733,274 discloses cresol sulfonic acid catalyzed phenol alkylation. J. Am. Chem. Soc., 1945, 67, 303 discloses aluminum chloride catalyzed phenol alkylation. Industrial and Engineering Chem., 1943, 35, 264 discloses sulfuric acid catalyzed phenol alkylation. Friedel-Crafts alkylation of aromatic compounds has also been reviewed. For example, see Olah, G. A. [0005] Friedel-Crafts and Related Reactions, Wiley-Interscience: New York, 1964, Vol. II, part I, Roberts, R. Friedel-Crafts Alkylation Chemistry, Marcel Dekker, 1984, and March, J. Advanced Organic Chemistry, 4th Edition, Wiley-Interscience: New York, 1992, pp 534-539.
  • Recently, it was disclosed that rare earth metal trifluoromethanesulfonates as water-tolerant Lewis acid catalysts can be utilized in Friedel-Crafts alkylation of benzene and phenol derivatives with secondary alkyl methanesulfonates. See SynLett, 1998, 255-256 and Synthesis, 1999, 603-606. [0006]
  • It is not practical to use LiAlH[0007] 4, a large excess of MnO2, or even a stoichiometric amount of potassium ferricyanide to carry out industrial scale preparations of alkylated, hydrogenated binaphthols. Such a process would be expected to generate a large amount of byproducts. Therefore, a need exists in the art for a practical and general method to prepare 3-alkylated-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols and 3,3′-dialkylated-5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols of this invention may be prepared by alkylation of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol in the presence of a catalyst, as shown below. [0023]
    Figure US20030100803A1-20030529-C00003
  • The starting material, 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol, can be obtained by the hydrogenation of 2,2′-binaphthol using a PtO[0024] 2 catalyst, as described in Tetrahedron Lett. 1997, 5273.
  • The first process aspect of the present invention is a process for making alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols by an acid-catalyzed, selective alkylation of 5,5′, 6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol by alkenes or cycloalkenes in the presence of an acid catalyst. The acid catalyst may be a Lewis acid or a protic acid. Suitable catalysts include the following: AlCl[0025] 3, trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, tosylic acid, phosphotungstic acid, silicotungstic acid, phosphomolybdic acid, zirconium or aluminum triflate, polymeric perfluorinated sulfonic acid (such as the material sold by DuPont as Nafion®) and polymeric sulfonic acid (such as the material sold by Aldrich as Amberlyst® 15 ion-exchange resin or the material sold by Dow as Dowex 32®). Phosphotungstic acid is preferred. The alkenes include monoethylenically unsaturated compounds containing from 3 to 20 carbons, such as propylene, butene, pentene, hexene, cyclopentene, cyclohexene, etc. The reaction may be carried out at 20° C. to 220° C., preferably at 90° C. to 180° C., when mono-substituted or 1,2-disubstituted alkenes are utilized as alkylating reagents, and 40° C. to 90° C. when 1,1-disubstituted, tri-substituted, tetra-substituted or aryl-substituted alkenes are utilized as alkylating reagents. The alkylation reaction may be carried out neat (without solvent) or in inert solvents such as nitromethane, methylene chloride, dichloroethane, chlorobenzene, dichlorobenzene, nitrobenzene or a combination of these solvents. Other solvents such as benzene, toluene, and xylene may also be used, but the solvents may become alkylated. When the boiling point of the alkene is lower than the reaction temperature, the reaction may be carried out in an autoclave or by feeding the alkene at atmosphere pressure. The reaction may be carried out in an autoclave when the boiling point of the solvent(s) is lower than the reaction temperature. A large excess of alkene over binaphthol gives double alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol, while about two equivalents or less of alkene (relative to 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol) gives both mono and double alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols.
  • The second process aspect of the present invention is a process for making alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol by the reaction of 5,5′, 6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with benzyl halide or tertiary alkyl halide in the presence of a Lewis acid catalyst. Suitable catalysts include the following: aluminum chloride, zinc chloride, boron trichloride, SnCl[0026] 4, SbCl5, and ZrCl4. Zinc chloride is preferred. Suitable halides are bromides and chlorides. The reaction may be carried out at 0° C. to 100° C., preferably at 20° C. to 80° C. The alkylation reaction may be carried out in inert solvents such as nitromethane, methylene chloride, dichloroethane, chlorobenzene, dichlorobenzene, nitrobenzene or a combination of these solvents. Other solvents such as benzene, toluene, and xylene may also be used, but the solvents may become alkylated. When tertiary alkyl halide is used as an alkylating reagent, the reaction is very selective towards mono-alkylated 5,5′, 6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol even when several equivalents excess of tertiary alkyl halide are used. However, double alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol eventually is formed when a large excess of tertiary alkyl halide is used and the reaction is allowed to run at higher temperature and for longer time. When benzyl halide is used as an alkylating reagent, double benzylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′, 8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol is formed when a large excess of benzyl halide relative to binaphthol is used, while one equivalent of the benzyl halide (relative to 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol) gives predominantly mono-benzylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols.
  • The third process aspect of the present invention is a process for making alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol by the reaction of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with alkyl sulfonates such as alkyl methanesulfonates, alkyl triflates, alkyl p-toluenesulfonates, and alkyl benzenesulfonates in the presence of an acid catalyst. Suitable alkyl sulfonates are of the formula A-SO[0027] 3—B, wherein A is C1 to C8 alkyl, C1 to C8 fluorinated alkyl, C6 to C10 aryl, or C6 to C10 fluorinated aryl; and B is C1 to C20 alkyl. Suitable catalysts for alkylation of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with alkyl sulfonates include Lewis acids such as aluminum chloride and boron trifluoride, as well as other acid catalysts such trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, tosylic acid, and rare earth metal triflates such as scandium trifluoromethanesulfonate, ytterbium trifluoromethanesulfonate, or lanthanum trifluoromethanesulfonate. Trifluoromethanesulfonic acid and scandium trifluoromethanesulfonate are the preferred catalysts. Alkylation of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′, 8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol may be carried out at 20° C. to 220° C., preferably at 90° C. to 180° C. The alkylation reaction may be carried out in inert solvents such as nitromethane, methylene chloride, carbon tetrachloride, dichloroethane, chlorobenzene, dichlorobenzene, nitrobenzene or a combination of these solvents. Other solvents such as benzene, toluene, and xylene may also be used, but the solvents may become alkylated. The product of the reaction of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with alkyl sulfonates varies depending on stoichometry and alkylation reagent used. A large excess of alkyl sulfonate gives double alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol, while about 1.5 equivalents or less of alkyl sulfonate (relative to 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol) gives predominately mono alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols.
  • The fourth process aspect of the present invention is a process for making alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol by the reaction of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with benzyl alcohol, secondary and tertiary alcohols containing 3 to 20 carbon atoms, in the presence of an acid catalyst. Suitable catalysts include the following: trifluoromethanesulfonic acid, tosylic acid, aluminum chloride, phosphotungstic acid, silicotungstic acid, phosphomolybdic acid, polymeric perfluorinated sulfonic acid (such as Nafion®) and polymeric sulfonic acid (such as Amberlyst®15 ion-exchange resin and Dowex 32®). Trifluoromethanesulfonic acid is preferred. Alkylation of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with alcohols may be carried out at 20° C. to 220° C., preferably at 90° C. to 180° C. The alkylation reaction may be carried out in inert solvents such as nitromethane, methylene chloride, carbon tetrachloride, dichloroethane, chlorobenzene, dichlorobenzene, nitrobenzene or a combination of these solvents. Other solvents such as benzene, toluene, and xylene may also be used, but the solvents may become alkylated. The product of the reaction of 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol with alcohol varies depending on stoichometry and alkylation reagent used. When tertiary alcohol is used as the alkylating agent, mono alkylated 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthols were obtained predominantly, even when several equivalents excess of tertiary alcohol was applied. A large excess of the secondary alcohol (relative to 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-2,2′-binaphthol) gave rise to both mono and double alkylated products. [0028]
  • Catalysts used in the processes of the present invention may be unsupported or supported. Suitable supports include silicon dioxide, zeolites, alumino silicates, and polystyrene. [0029]
  • The compounds which are produced by the process of the present invention can be used as reactants to make phosphorous-containing ligands that are useful to make catalysts that, in turn, are useful in both hydrocyanation and hydroformylation reactions. Bidentate phosphite ligands are particularly useful. [0030]
  • Bidentate phosphite ligands can be prepared as described in U.S. Pat. No. 5,235,113 by contacting phosphorochloridites with the compounds made by the processes of the present invention. More recent U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,031,120 and 6,069,267, incorporated herein by reference, describe selective synthesis of bidentate phosphite ligands in which a phosphorochloridite is prepared in-situ from phosphorus trichloride and a phenol such as o-cresol and then treated in the same reaction vessel with an aromatic diol to give the bidentate phosphite ligand. The alkylated products of the processes of the present invention can be substituted for the aromatic diol in the above process. [0031]
  • The compounds made by the processes of the present invention can be used to make polymeric ligands by a process which comprises (1) reacting the compounds made by the processes of the present invention with a benzyl chloride containing polymer, in the presence of a Lewis acid catalyst, and (2) reacting the product of step (1) with at least one phosphorochloridite compound in the presence of an organic base. Preferably the Lewis acid catalyst is zinc chloride or aluminum chloride, and the organic base is a trialkylamine. [0032]
  • Two particularly important industrial catalytic reactions using phosphorus-containing ligands are olefin hydrocyanation and isomerization of branched nitrites to linear nitrites. Phosphite ligands are particularly useful for both reactions. The hydrocyanation of unactivated and activated ethylenically unsaturated compounds (olefins) using transition metal complexes with monodentate and bidentate phosphite ligands is well known. Bidentate phosphinite and phosphonite ligands are useful as part of a catalyst system for the hydrocyanation of ethylenically unsaturated compounds. Bidentate phosphinite ligands are also useful as part of a catalyst system for the hydrocyanation of aromatic vinyl compounds. [0033]
  • Hydroformylation is another industrially useful process that utilizes catalysts made from phosphorus-containing ligands. The use of phosphine ligands, including diphosphines, is known for this purpose. The use of catalysts made from phosphite ligands is also known. Such catalysts usually contain a Group VIII metal. See for example, U.S. Pat. No. 5,235,113, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference. [0034]
