Organocatalytic asymmetric multicomponent reactions of aromatic aldehydes and anilines with β-ketoesters: facile and atom-economical access to chiral tetrahydropyridines

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first catalytic asymmetric pseudo five-component (AB2C2 type) reaction is reported. A spirocyclic chiral phosphoric acid catalyzed one-pot multicomponent reaction of aromatic aldehydes, anilines and β-ketoesters and afforded highly functionalized enantioenriched tetrahydropyridines with high levels of stereocontrol.
