Reining in the outliers: An efficient approach for enantioselective hydrogenation of 3,4-disubstituted isoquinolines was successfully developed. When isoquinolines are treated with [Ir(cod)Cl]2/(R)-synphos in the presence of 1-bromo-3-chloro-5,5-dimethyl-hydantoin (BCDMH), the chiral 3,4-disubstituted tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives are obtained with ee values as high as 96 % (see scheme; cod=1,5-cyclooctadiene).
