In this work, a series of chiral iron(III) aminopyridine complexes have been prepared and
tested in the aerobic oxidative coupling of substituted β-naphthols. Upon 1 mol. % catalyst
loadings, these complexes ensure moderate to good yield of the corresponding BINOLs (up to
94 % within 24 h), having up to 55 % optical purity.
