Chiral Brønsted acid-catalyzed enantioselective addition of indoles to ketimines

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly enantioselective addition of indoles to a readily available ketimine was found to be catalyzed by a chiral phosphoric acid. This organocatalytic process represents a rare example of an addition reaction to a non-aromatic ketimine.
