Highly diastereo- and enantioselective NHC-catalyzed [3+2] annulation of enals and isatins

Author affiliations

Abstract

The chiral N-heterocyclic carbene bearing a proximal hydroxy group derived from L-pyroglutamic acid was found to be an efficient catalyst for the [3+2] annulation of enals and isatins to give the corresponding spirocyclic oxindolo-γ-butyrolactones in good yield with good diastereo- and enantioselectivities.
