Drop it! A highly enantioselective catalytic cascade reaction of α-ketoacids and aldehydes is achieved using the title catalyst and water as the solvent. Fluorescence imaging shows that the catalyst is mainly distributed on the surface of emulsion droplets. Optically active isotetronic acids can be obtained with this method and the emulsion droplets are responsible for the high reactivity and enantioselectivity.
