Aaron TS Template Library
Enantioselective Pd catalyzed addition of 2-methylbut-2-ene to 2-methylcyclohex-2-en-1-one using the chiral ligand ligand 2-t-Bu-PyrOx.
TS structures computed at the M06/6-31+G(d)/LANDL2DZ level of theory by Wiest et al., as well as additional conformations arising from ring puckering.
