Abstract: Non-standard experimental conditions can often enhance organocatalytic reactions considerably. The current study explores the effectiveness of a range of non-standard reaction conditions for the asymmetric organocatalytic 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of a nitrone with α,β-unsaturated aldehydes. The influence of ionic liquids, high-pressure conditions, ultrasound, microwave irradiation and ballmilling was tested as well as the flow process. Because of the low reactivity of the nitrone and unsaturated aldehydes in the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition, cycloadducts were isolated in only moderate yields from the majority of experiments. However, high diastereo- and enantioselectivities were observed in ionic liquids under solvent-free conditions and in the flow reactor.

Keywords: dipolar cycloaddition – ball-milling – flow reactor – ionic liquids – microwave – ultrasound
