The mechanism of the NHC catalyzed aza-Morita–Baylis–Hillman reaction: insights into a new substrate-catalyzed bimolecular pathway

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first mechanistic study on the NHC-catalyzed aza-MBH reaction between cyclopentenone and N-mesylbenzaldimine using density functional theory reveals that a bimolecular mechanism, involving two molecules of benzaldimine in the proton transfer, is energetically more preferred over the conventional direct proton transfer.
