The organocatalytic Michael reaction of ketones with γ-monohalonitrodienes catalyzed by chiral prolinethiol ether under solvent-free conditions was developed. The described method represents a novel approach for accessing highly functionalized monohaloalkenes with α, β-stereocenters of up to >99% ee.

A convenient procedure has been developed for the preparation of synthetically useful, room-temperature-stable aryllithiums starting from aryl chlorides and lithium metal. The method provides a route to aryllithiums which have previously not been accessible cleanly or could only be prepared...
