Abstract

The immobilization of N-sulfonyl-(Ra)-binam-D-prolinamide using polystyrene as a support allows the recovery of an efficient catalytic system for the enantioselective direct aldol reaction between different ketones and aldehydes under solvent-free or aqueous conditions. The polystyrene-supported N-sulfonyl-(Ra)-binam-D-prolinamide catalyst in combination with benzoic acid showed similar results to those obtained with unsupported N-tosyl-binam-derived prolinamide under similar reaction conditions. The aldol products were obtained at room temperature and using only 2 equivalents of the ketone with high yields, regio-, diastereo- and enantioselectivities. The aldol reaction between aldehydes can also be performed under these reaction conditions with moderate results. The recovered catalyst can be reused up to six times without having a detrimental effect on the achieved results.
