Abstract: Organoammonium salts composed of a Brønsted acid and an anilinothiourea promoted the Michael addition of β-keto esters and α,β-unsaturated aldehydes in the presence of primary amines to give functionalized 1,4-dihydropyridines enantioselectively. With the use of the different Brønsted acids such as DFA and HBF4 with the same bifunctional thiourea, both enantiomers of 4-substituted 1,4-dihydropyridine were synthesized from the same starting materials.
Keywords: bifunctional thiourea-ammonium salt; aminothiourea; Brønsted acid; 1,4-dihydropyridines; Michael addition; a,b-unsaturated aldehydes; b-keto esters
