Role of quaternary ammonium salts as new additives in the enantioselective organocatalytic β-benzylation of enals

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report herein the efficiency of quaternary ammonium salts as co-catalysts in organocatalytic Michael reactions involving iminium activation of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes. The enantioselective formal benzylation of these substrates has been optimized and used to rationalize the role of the ammonium salts in these processes.
