In control: The computational study of the title reaction catalyzed by the planar-chiral 4-(pyrrolidino)pyridine is reported (see scheme). The resting state is a chiral Brønsted acid complex and the rate-determining step involves a chiral base. The catalyst controls the enantioselectivity through a combination of stereoelectronic effects and CH⋅⋅⋅O interactions.
