The enantiomers of Propranolol, Pindolol, and Carazolol, well-known β-blockers, have been used to prepare cationic aminophosphine phosphinite rhodium complexes. Propraphos-Rh and Pindophos-Rh are very efficient catalysts in the asymmetric hydrogenation of N-Boc-protected unusual dehydroamino acid derivatives. Carazolol-Rh is less suitable in both activity and enantioselectivity. Under the same conditions, N-Boc-protected dehydrodipeptides are hydrogenated with diastereoselectivities between 70 and 90% de.
