Abstract

The first complex of triphenylphosphine oxide $(Ph_3PO)$ with a chiral substrate, formed by crystallising Ph3PO in the presence of the synthetically important chiral auxiliary S-(-)-1,1'-bi-2,2'-naphthol (BINOL) is reported. The corresponding racemate form has also been prepared and the single-crystal X-ray diffraction structures of both reveal 1(BINOL):2(TPPO) stoichiometry. In the homochiral complex the TPPO molecules apparently exist in one enantiomeric form only. Crystal packing in both is dominated by intermolecular hydrogen bonding between a BINOL hydroxyl group and a TPPO oxygen atom (around $2_1$ and $3_1$ axes in the racemate and the chiral forms respectively). The crystalline racemate—a racemic compound rather than a conglomerate—is more densely packed than the homochiral form, thus apparently conforming to Wallach’s rule.
