Planar-chiral transition-metal complexes, which include properly substituted metallocenes/half-metallocenes and (π-arene)chromium complexes, are important chiral scaffolds in organic and organometallic chemistry. In spite of the increasing utilities of these molecules in asymmetric synthesis, their preparative methods in optically active forms are rather limited. Whereas the classical methods typically require stoichiometric chiral reagents or auxiliaries, asymmetric catalysis of preparing such planar-chiral molecules has been virtually unexplored up until very recently.[1]

Olefin-metathesis reactions using well-defined catalysts, such as the Grubbs’ ruthenium catalysts and the Schrock’s molybdenum catalysts, have been powerful tools in organic synthesis and we[2] and others have demonstrated their usefulness in the modulation of metal-containing compounds as well. In 2002, we reported preparation of [4]metallocenophanes by the ring-closing metathesis reaction of 1,1’-diallylmetallocenes.[2a] The Mo-catalyzed asymmetric ring-closing metathesis (ARCM) was highly effective for enantioselective synthesis of the various planar-chiral ferrocenes giving the RCM products in up to 99% ee.[3] The similar method could be applied to the asymmetric synthesis of (π-arene)chromium(0) complexes[4] as well as (η5-cyclopentadienyl)manganese(I) complexes[5] with excellent enantioselectivity. Scope and limitation of these methods as well as applications of the planar-chiral products in asymmetric organic transformations will be described in detail.
