A novel iridium-catalyzed asymmetric ring-opening (ARO) reaction of oxabenzonorbornadienes with a variety of phenols was reported, which afforded the corresponding trans-2-phenoxy-1,2-dihydronaphthalen-1-ol products in high yields with moderate to excellent enantioselectivities (up to 98% ee) under mild conditions. The trans products are formed via the enantioselective cleavage of a bridgehead carbon-oxygen bond in 1 followed by SN2 nucleophilic attack of phenols. The effects of various bisphosphine ligands, Ag (I) salt, ammonium halides, a base, and solvents on the yield and enantioselectivity of the reaction were also investigated. The trans-configuration of the product 2a was confirmed by X-ray crystal structure analysis. A possible mechanism for the present catalytic reaction was proposed.
