The ligand 3,3'-bis(diethylaminomethyl)-1,1'-bi-2-naphthol (binolam) contains an arrayed Brønsted acid-Brønsted base (BABB) system, which is responsible for the original shape of its lanthanide compounds. The solution structure of Pr, Nd and Yb compounds is solved by means of paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy and it is demonstrated that they are substantially(More)
Conscious of the importance that stereochemical issues may have on the design of efficient organocatalyts for both Morita-Baylis-Hillman and aza-Morita-Baylis-Hillman reaction we have analyzed them in this minireview. The so-called standard reactions involve "naked" enolates which therefore should lead to the syn adducts as the major products, irrespective(More)
The concept of noncovalent organocatalysis by means of networks of cooperative hydrogen bonds (NCHB organocatalysis) has been explored. Arylideneureas were chosen as ideal substrates because of their powerful donor-acceptor properties. We have examined their uncatalyzed, direct Mannich reaction with acetoacetates in comparison with that catalyzed by a(More)
