Double agent: The title reaction using the guanidine catalyst 1 can deliver both enantiomers of the product with excellent enantioselectivity by judicious choice of the double bond geometry of the the β,γ-unsaturated carbonyl compound. Computational studies reveal the possible origin of the inversed enantioselectivity, and the potential for enantiodivergent synthesis chiral amine-containing substrates is attractive.
