[reaction: see text] The catalytic activity of the prolinamide-type catalysts may be improved by introducing additional prolinamide moiety into the catalyst, while the enantioselectivity can still be maintained or further improved. A C2-symmetric bisprolinamide with two prolinamide moieties has been found to be an excellent catalyst for direct aldol… CONTINUE READING
