Enantioenriched (>98% ee) β-diketimines derived from Isoquinoline and 2-Amino Naphthalene (‘IAN-amines’) were prepared. Thermal racemization of a series of R-IAN amines (R = NH2, NHMe, NMe2) revealed a high barrier to atropisomerization (~30 kcal/mol) and its relative insensitivity to substitution at the aminonaphthalene nitrogen. Molecular mechanics calculations accurately predicted the observed relative substituent effects.
