Abstract

The new hybrid-type squaramide-fused amino alcohol containing both a Brønsted basic site and hydrogen-bonding sites in the molecule showed a high catalytic activity as an organocatalyst in the enantioselective domino Michael addition/cyclization reaction of oxoindolines with cyclic 1,3-diketones to afford the chiral spiro-conjugated oxindoles featuring 2-aminopyrans fusing with carbo-heterocyclic ring systems with excellent chemical yields (up to 98%) and enantioselectivities (up to 95% ee). The obtained chiral spiro-conjugated 2-aminopyrans bearing quaternary stereogenic carbon center could be used as synthetic precursors for several natural products that have a broad spectrum of fascinating biological activities.
