Asymmetric organocatalytic sulfa-Michael reactions give access to enantiomerically enriched sulfur containing adducts that can be used as valuable chiral building blocks. A variety of chalcone derivatives were allowed to react with methyl thioglycolate under optimized conditions, in the presence of a bifunctional quinine derived sterically encumbered squaramide organocatalyst, giving rise to excellent stereoselectivities, up to 99% ee. The designed catalyst system proved to be efficient even at gram scale and under milder reaction conditions.
