Asymmetric Michael addition of aldehydes to nitroalkenes using a primary amino acid lithium salt.

Abstract

Enantioselective Michael addition of aldehydes to nitroalkenes was successfully carried out by asymmetric catalysis with L-phenylalanine lithium salt, giving gamma-nitroaldehydes in good yields with high enantioselectivity.
