[structure: see text]. 1,1'-Binaphthyl-2,2'-diamine-based (S)-prolinamides in the presence of stearic acid were able to promote the direct aldol condensation of cyclohexanone and other ketones with different aldehydes in the presence of a massive amount of water in very good yields, high diastereoselectivity, and up to 99% ee. The behavior of both C2- and(More)
Poly(methylhydrosiloxane) (PMHS) supported organic catalysts promoted the Diels-Alder reaction of dienes with α,β-unsaturated aldehydes, also in pure water, in yields and enantiomeric excesses comparable to those observed with the non-supported catalysts (up to 93% ee). Recycling of the catalysts was performed with no loss of enantioselectivity for at least(More)
A highly efficient catalytic stereoselective ketimine reduction is described. The combination of an inexpensive chiral organocatalyst, easily prepared in a single step, and of a very cheap removable chiral auxiliary allowed us to obtain enantiomerically pure amino compounds. The methodology allowed synthesis of chiral secondary and primary amines and(More)
A highly stereoselective trichlorosilane-mediated reduction of N-benzyl enamines was developed; the combination of a low cost, easy to make metal-free catalyst and an inexpensive chiral auxiliary allowed to perform the reaction on substrates with different structural features often with total control of the stereoselectivity. By easy deprotection through(More)
The straightforward synthesis of a series of enantiomerically pure Lewis basic amides by simple condensation of commercially available enantiopure diamines with picolinic acid is reported. These compounds were shown to promote the enantioselective reduction of ketoimines with trichlorosilane. Working with the model substrate N-phenyl benzophenone imine, the(More)
