Deep-sea Diels-Alder: The asymmetric organocatalytic Diels-Alder reaction of cyclohexenones with aromatic nitroolefins can be carried out in seawater and brine. The reaction proceeds by an in situ enamine activation involving a one-step concerted addition pathway (see scheme).
Generally, amine-catalyzed enantioselective transformations rely on chiral enamine or unsaturated iminium intermediates. Herein, we report a protocol involving dual activation by an aromatic iminium and hydrogen-bonding. An enantioselective aza-Michael-Henry domino reaction of 2-aminobenzaldehydes with nitroolefins has been developed through this protocol(More)
The highly enantioselective Michael addition reaction of ketones to nitrodienes was promoted efficiently by the accessible and fine-tunable organocatalytic system of pyrrolidinyl-thioimidazole and chiral thioureido acid. The corresponding adducts were afforded in good yields with high diastereoselectivities (up to 99 : 1) and excellent enantioselectivities(More)
The asymmetric tandem oxa-Michael-aldol reaction of salicylic aldehyde derivatives with alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes catalyzed by a chiral amine/chiral acid organocatalytic system was investigated. The organocatalytic system of (S)-diphenylpyrrolinol trimethylsilyl ether with chiral shift reagent (S)-Mosher acid presented a synergistic effect in the(More)
The title compound, C14H14BrNO4, contains a tricyclic ring system including three contiguous stereocenters all of which exhibit an R configuration. The cyclo-hexa-none ring adopts a chair conformation. The central oxane ring assumes a strained envelope conformation, with five of the ring atoms being nearly coplanar with the bromo-phenyl group and with the C(More)
The crystal structure of the title compoud, C(17)H(20)BrNO(3), contains three chiral centers, which all exhibit an S configuration. The C=C double bond has an E conformation. The cyclo-hexane ring is in a chair conformation. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by weak N-O⋯Br inter-actions [O⋯Br = 3.136 (4) Å].
