Abstract: In Part I, we have successfully developed a number of useful, straightforward and interesting methodologies on the asymmetric Mannich-type reaction and the Mukaiyama aldol reaction using non-conventional solvents. Using L-valine methyl ester as a chiral amine in methanol or ionic liquids, the In(III)-complexes catalyzed asymmetric Mannich-type reaction proceeded smoothly with wide variety of aldehydes in high diastereoselectivities. A chiral auxiliary was designed and synthesis for the asymmetric Mannich-type reaction in water. In addition, we reported the first Mukaiyama aldol reaction using [omim]Cl in the absence of catalyst. We successfully increased the efficiency of this system by using a newly designed polar ionic liquid.The regioselectivity of nickel-catalyzed homoallylation was studied in Part II. At the mean time, we have successfully developed a chemical kinetic resolution of the bishomoallylic alcohols using In(OTf)3-catalyzed oxomiun ene-type cyclization with high enantioselectivities.
