The importance of being dispersed: Bifunctional thiourea- or sulfonamide-derived tertiary amines such as Takemoto′s catalyst catalyze the enantioselective nitro-Michael addition of N-unprotected 3-substituted 2-oxindoles to nitrostyrene in high yields and enantiomeric and diastereomeric ratios. DFT calculations including van der Waals corrections are performed for the stereoisomers.
