A summary of the article is shown below:
Although BINOL-derived phosphoric acids are among the most widely used chiral Brønsted acid organocatalysts, their structures are mostly limited to 3,3′-disubstituted ones and simple 3-mono-substituted ones without any polar functionalities on the 3-substituent have not been used in highly enantioselective reactions. This work reports such 3-mono-substituted analogues as effective organocatalysts in direct highly enantioselective Friedel-Crafts-type alkylation of N-unprotected α-ketiminoester. The origin of the observed high enantioselectivity with the 3-mono-substituted catalyst is also discussed.
