Suggestions for Improvement

The authors describe the syntheses of several optically pure [3+4] cycloaddition product from the reaction of racemic azomethine imines and enals using indanol-derived catalyst D having N-mesityl substituent.  This work pertains to the development of N-Heterocyclic carbene...
