Abstract

The novel bifunctional bisalkaloids have been developed as highly efficient catalysts for the asymmetric conjugate addition of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds to nitroalkenes with low catalyst loading (1 mol %) at ambient temperature, providing the products with excellent enantioselectivities (up to 97% ee).
