A range of β-amino nitriles containing contiguous tertiary and quaternary stereogenic carbon centers were synthesized by using the title reaction. The reaction was catalyzed by a chiral N,N′-dioxide scandium(III) complex under mild reaction conditions. Based on experimental investigations, a possible transition state has been proposed to explain the origin of asymmetric inductivity.
