In a highly enantioselective direct Mannich-type reaction of aldimines with dialkyl malonates, an inexpensive Mg(II)-BINOLate salt can activate both aldimines and malonates as a cooperative acid-base catalyst. Various β-aminoesters and α-halo-β-aminoesters could be synthesized in high yields and with high enantioselectivities even in gram-scale.
