, : Pyrrolidine-thiourea as a bifunctional organocatalyst: highly enantioselective Michael addition of cyclohexanone to nitroolefins. Organic Letters 8(14): 2901-2904

[reaction: see text] Asymmetric Michael additions of cyclohexanone to both aryl and alkyl nitroolefins in the presence of 20 mol % of organocatalyst 2b and 10 mol % of n-butyric acid afford adducts 5 with high diastereoselectivities and enantioselectivities.
