An unprecedented remote construction of chiral vicinal tertiary and quaternary centers by a catalytic asymmetric 1,6-conjugate addition of prochiral carbon nucleophiles to cyclic dienones has been developed. Both 5H-oxazol-4-ones and 2-oxindoles were found to be very efficient carbon nucleophiles in this reaction at a remote position, giving products with(More)
We report herein an efficient, general and green method for decarboxylative fluorination of aliphatic carboxylic acids. By using a transition-metal-free, organocatalytic photoredox system, the reaction of various aliphatic carboxylic acids with the Selectfluor reagent afforded the corresponding alkyl fluorides in satisfactory yields under visible light(More)
A diastereodivergent catalytic asymmetric Michael addition of 2-oxindoles to α,β-unsaturated ketones has been successfully developed with two complementary chiral diamine catalysts, affording chiral 3,3-disubstituted oxindoles with two adjacent chiral centers. Diastereodivergence has been realized through modifying substrates and utilizing different(More)
The first example of a highly enantioselective and scalable formal diaza-ene reaction between N-monosubstituted hydrazones and enones catalyzed by a simple chiral primary-second diamine salt has been developed. The catalytic process provides a highly practical and stereoselective synthetic method for chiral hydropyridazines.
We report herein a highly efficient intramolecular coupling reaction of tertiary amines and ketones (α,β-unsaturated ketones) by using a Brønsted acid as a cocatalyst, affording 2-arylindols in good to excellent yields (up to 92%) under visible light irradiation at room temperature.
