A novel and safe reaction protocol for the enantioselective enamine-catalysed addition of acetaldehyde to nitroalkenes is presented; this protocol makes use of a safe acetaldehyde precursor to access important intermediates to Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), and allows the use of fewer equivalents of acetaldehyde and lower catalyst loadings. The reaction developed proved to be suitable to be performed on gram-scale and to produce key intermediates for the synthesis of pharmacologically active compounds such as pregabalin.
