The novel palladium(II) complexes coordinated with (S,S)- and (S,R)-2-[4-(isopropyl)oxazol-2-yl]-2'-diphenylphosphino-1,1'-binaphthyls (1a and 1b) were prepared and their structures were determined by X-Ray crystallography. The X-Ray single crystal structure studies reveal that the axially chiral binaphthyl skeletons are more strongly regulating the chiral environment around the palladium centers than the chiral carbon centers in the oxazoline moieties. The results from application of 1a and 1b to the asymmetric Heck reaction also supported this conclusion. The highest enantioselectivity (88% ee) was observed in (R)-2-phenyl-2,5-dihydrofuran which was obtained from 2,3-dihydrofuran and phenyl triflate catalyzed by Pd/1a.
