Zinc-catalyzed asymmetric α-amination of β-ketocarbonyl compounds 2 using dialkyl azodicarboxylates 3 as the electrophilic nitrogen source is described. The complexes of Zn(OTf)2 and the axially chiral phenanthroline ligands (S)-1 were identified as effective catalysts for this transformation to provide α-amino-β-ketocarbonyl compounds 4 with up to 93% ee.
