Abstract

Rosini Dipartimento di Chimica, Università degli Studi della Basilicata, via N. Sauro, 85; Potenza. e-mail: pisani.laura@virgilio.it The copper-catalyzed conjugate addition of organozinc reagent to α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds is a widely used strategy for the catalytic asymmetric C-C bond formation, with a large spectrum of substrates.1 Unfortunately, acyclic esters are not reactive in this reaction, in spite of the remarkable importance of chiral 3-alkylsubstituted esters both in asymmetric synthesis and as precursor of biologically active compounds.
