Recyclable organocatalysis: highly enantioselective Michael addition of 1,3-diaryl-1,3-propanedione to nitroolefins

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first Michael addition of 1,3-diaryl-1,3-propanedione to nitroolefins was demonstrated using a simple organocatalyst, which afforded excellent yields (81–97%) and enantioselectivities (90 to >99% ee); the catalyst and excess reactant can be reused seven times through a simple filtration operation.
