HOT: Organocatalytic approach to the enantioselective synthesis of alpha-arylcyclohexenones and derivatives



M. Belén Cid et al. at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain, have devised a simple and efficient organocatalytic approach for the synthesis of alpha-aryl cyclohexenones and cyclohexanones, leading to ee up to 96% and complete diastereoselectivity, via a Michael addition and aldol reaction as key steps.
