Enantioselective Cycloaddition of Styrenes with Aldimines Catalyzed by a Chiral Magnesium Potassium Binaphthyldisulfonate Cluster as a Chiral Brønsted Acid Catalyst: A chiral magnesium potassium binaphthyldisulfonate cluster, as a chiral Brønsted acid catalyst, was shown to catalyze an enantioselective cycloaddition of styrenes with aldimines for the first time. The strong Brønsted acidity of the catalyst precursors, which might dissolve drying agents and take up the leached Mg2+ and K+, serendipitously led to good enantioselectivity.
