Abstract [en]

The highly enantioselective organo-co-catalytic aza-Morita–Baylis–Hillman (MBH)-type reaction between N-carbamate-protected imines and α,β-unsaturated aldehydes has been developed. The organic co-catalytic system of proline and 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO) enables the asymmetric synthesis of the corresponding N-Boc- and N-Cbz-protected β-amino-α-alkylidene-aldehydes in good to high yields and up to 99% ee. In the case of aza-MBH-type addition of enals to phenylprop-2-ene-1-imines, the co-catalytic reaction exhibits excellent 1,2-selectivity. The organo-co-catalytic aza-MBH-type reaction can also be performed by the direct highly enantioselective addition of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes to bench-stableN-carbamate-protected α-amidosulfones to give the corresponding β-amino-α-alkylidene-aldehydes with up to 99% ee.The organo-co-catalytic aza-MBH-type reaction is also an expeditious entry to nearly enantiomerically pure β-amino-α-alkylidene-amino acids and β-amino-α-alkylidene-lactams (99% ee). The mechanism and stereochemistry of the chiral amine and DABCO co-catalyzed aza-MBH-type reaction arealso discussed.
