Abstract

When a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition between nitrones and α,β-unsaturated aldehydes catalyzed by L-proline derivatives takes place inside the hexameric resorcin[4]arene capsule the products are obtained in higher yields and selectivity, with respect to the reaction in bulk solution. The 4-formyl regioisomers were obtained preferentially, with an excellent preference for the endo-diastereoisomers and with moderate to good enantioselectivities. An extended in silico study was conducted to rationalize the observed outcomeand to investigate the equilibria between the reagents outside and inside the capsule.
