A first organocatalytic enantioselective route was developed for the conversion of readily prepared and air stable aliphatic hydrazones to synthetically valuable alpha-hydrazinonitriles. This BINOL-phosphate catalyzed Strecker-type reaction (see scheme, Ar = p-NO(2)-Ph) provides a new practical and direct route to alpha-hydrazino acids of synthetic and biological importance. The actually active catalyst is proposed to be an in situ formed O-silylated BINOL-phosphate, thus shifting the nature of… Expand
