The development, scope and application of the highly enantioselective organocatalytic aziridination of a, b- unsaturated aldehydes is presented. The aminocatalytic aziridination of a, b- unsaturated aldehydes enables the asymmetric formation of b-formylaziridines with up to >19:1 dr and 99% ee. The aminocatalytic aziridination of a-monosobstituted enals gives access to terminal a-substituted-a-formyl aziridines in high yields and up to 99% ee. In the case of the organocatalytic aziridination of disubstituted a, b-unsaturated aldehydes, the transformations gives nearly enantiomeric pure b-formyl-functionalized aziridine products. A higly enantioselective one-pot cascade sequence based on combination of asymmetric amine and N-heterocyclic carbene catalysis is also disclosed. This transformation gives the corresponding N-Boc and N-Cbz protected b-amino acid esters with ee´s ranging from 92-99%.
