Asymmetric reduction of αβ-unsaturated ketones with lithium aluminium hydride partially decomposed by (–)-N-methylephedrine and N-ethylaniline

Abstract

The title asymmetric reaction is found to convert open chain enones into the corresponding optically active allylic alcohols in high optical (78–98% enantiomeric excess) and chemical (92–100%) yields.
