trans-1,2-Diaminocyclohexane is an organic compound with the formula C6H10(NH2)2. This diamine is a building block for chiral ligands that are useful in asymmetric catalysis.
Additional recommended knowledge
A mixture of cis- and trans-1,2-diaminocyclohexane is produced by the hydrogenation of o-phenylenediamine. The trans isomer can be separated into the two enantiomers using tartaric acid as the resolving agent.
Ligands derived from chxn
Representative ligands prepared from this diamine are diaminocyclohexanetetraacetic acid (CyDTAH4), Trost ligand, and the salen analogue used in the Jacobsen epoxidation.
