Take two: By employing two equivalents of an aldehyde in an asymmetric organocatalytic domino reaction, the nucleophilic enamine intermediate is also converted into the corresponding iminium species through oxidation with o-iodoxybenzoic acid. Thus, polyfunctionalized cyclohexene derivatives are formed from two simple starting materials in good yields and stereoselectivities (see scheme; Bn=benzyl, EWG=electron-withdrawing group).
