Conjugate addition reactions of a wide range of nucleophilic enol species with enones, catalyzed by a cinchona alkaloid derived thiourea organocatalyst, have been developed with attending good yields and high enantioselectivities under a mild reaction condition. The general method provides an efficient approach to the preparation of versatile building blocks possessing various functional groups.
