Experiments involving competition between chiral and achiral lithium amides provide a qualitative impression of the kinetics of different amide motifs in enolization reactions. The level of enantioselectivity was not diminished by the inclusion of lithium diisopropylamide (LDA; see scheme) into asymmetric enolizations mediated by a chiral lithium amide base, derived from a 1,2-diamine.
