Pepping up Michael: An asymmetric Michael addition of nitromethane to β-disubstituted α,β-unsaturated aldehydes was realized by a resin-supported peptide catalyst. Whereas the use of a low-molecular-weight catalyst resulted in poor yields, the peptide effectively promoted the reaction in aqueous media with high enantioselectivity.
