Abstract [en]

A stereochemical divergent approach for the highly enantioselective synthesis of distinct bicyclic products with multiple stereocenters from a racemate using a single chiral catalyst is disclosed. It is based on switches of the overall reaction pathways in the chiral amine-catalyzed cascade reactions between racemic ?-nitro ketones and a,beta-unsaturated aldehydes using different achiral co-catalysts. The utility of the method is exemplified by the highly diasteroselective switch and stereoconvergent deracemization process by combination of chiral amine and achiral hydrogen-bond-donating catalysts.
