A chiral copper-hydride catalyst for the asymmetric conjugate reduction of α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds has been used for the reduction of substrates containing β-nitrogen substituents. A new set of reaction conditions has allowed for a variety of β-azaheterocyclic acid derivatives to be synthesized in excellent yields and with high degrees of enantioselectivity. In addition, the effect that the nature of the nitrogen substituent has on the rate of the conjugate reduction reaction has been explored.
