Abstract

Achiral ethylenediamine forms chiral structures spontaneously when crystallized as the sulfate salt. By using these chiral crystals of ethylenediamine sulfate (ethylenediammonium sulfate), asymmetric autocatalysis of pyrimidyl alkanol affords a highly enantioenriched product with chirality that is determined by the chirality of the crystals.
