Abstract

A catalytic asymmetric Michael reaction using Schiff bases promoted by D2-symmetrical ammonium salts as phase-transfer catalysts is described. The reaction of glycine Schiff base (1a) gave the Michael adduct with up to 91% ee and tetrasubstituted carbons was also constructed using alanine Schiff base (3a) with up to 63% ee.
