A multicomponent organocatalyzed highly diastereo- and enantioselective synthesis of CF3-substituted aziridines is described. This reaction of in situ generated CF3CHN2 and aldimines was realized by chiral Brønsted acid catalysis. The utility of the products is illustrated by easy access to β-CF3 isocysteine and aziridine-containing dipeptides.
