New nucleophiles for the O-nitroso aldol reaction in the form of readily prepared disilanyl enol ethers make this transformation more practical and more versatile. A silver catalyst with a chiral biaryl phosphite ligand promotes the title reaction with high enantio- and regioselectivity (see scheme). R1,R2 = H, Ar; TMS = trimethylsilyl.
