Abstract: [3+2] Cycloaddition of azomethine imines with electron-deficient terminal alkynes was smoothly catalyzed by a chiral bis(imidazolidine)pyridine-CuOAc complex to give bicyclic pyrazolo[1,2-a]pyrazolone derivatives with up to 74% ee.
Keywords: pyrazolone; [3+2] cycloaddition; asymmetric synthesis; catalyst; chiral ligand
