A chiral PYBOX-DIPH-Zn(II) catalyzed enantioselective Mukaiyama–Michael reaction of acyclic silyl enol ethers with 2-enoylpyridine N-oxides has been studied in external additive free conditions at ambient temperature. The methodology offers straightforward access to a variety of functionalized chiral 1,5-dicarbonyl compounds, which could easily be elaborated into synthetically viable pyrones viahydrolysis followed by cyclization. A transition state model has been proposed to explain the stereochemical outcome.
