Be water my friend: A new family of chiral diarylprolinol-type organocatalysts with improved performances in conjugate addition reactions in water and proceeding under the iminium activation manifold were studied. Once the optimized catalyst structure had been found, it proved its efficiency in the catalytic enantioselective cyclopropanation of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes using water as the only reaction medium.
