Squaramide-catalyzed enantioselective Friedel–Crafts reaction of indoles with imines

Author affiliations

Abstract

Chiral squaramides are highly enantioselective catalysts for Friedel–Crafts reaction of indoles with N-tosyl imines, affording 3-indolyl methanamine products in 85–96% yields and 84–96% ees.
