High selectivity: A highly diastereo- and enantioselective Mannich reaction between a synthetically flexible ketimine and aldehydes has been developed. The syn- or anti-Mannich products contain tetrasubstituted chiral carbon centers and were obtained with almost complete stereoselectivity by using either L-proline or an axially chiral aminosulfonamide, respectively, as the catalyst (see scheme, Tf=trifluoromethanesulfonyl).
