Are you looking for an operationally simple means of preparing enantio-enriched benzylic-like centers bearing nitrogen? Consider this new and convenient alternative to asymmetric hydrogenation: CuH when ligated by an enantiopure SEGPHOS ligand can catalytically reduce aryl ketimines at room temperature in high yields and even higher ee values (see scheme; TMDS=tetramethyldisiloxane).
