The first highly diastereo- and enantioselective additions of aryl nitromethane pronucleophiles to aryl aldimines are described. Identification of an electron rich chiral Bis(Amidine) catalyst for this aza-Henry variant was key to this development, leading ultimately to differentially protected cis-stilbene diamines in two steps. This method then became the lynchpin for an enantioselective synthesis of (-)-Nutlin-3 (Hoffmann-LaRoche), a potent cis-imidazoline small molecule inhibitor of p53… Expand

Preparation of (-)-Nutlin-3 using enantioselective organocatalysis at decagram scale.
TLDR
The disclosure of the first enantioselective synthesis of (-)-Nutlin-3 provided a basis to prepare larger amounts of this tool used widely in cancer biology, and the discovery of a novel bis(amidine) organocatalyst that provides high enantiOSElectivity at warmer reaction temperature (-20 °C) and low catalyst loadings was found.
