(1R)-Amino-(2S)-indanol and its N-methyl and N-benzyl derived oxazaborolidines were investigated in the asymmetric reduction of acetophenone in order to obtain insight into the reaction mechanism. Optimisation studies carried out with B-methyl (1R)-amino-(2S)-indanol resulted in enantioselectivities of 84% (by GC) and these applied to a series of aromatic ketones with differing degrees of enantioselectivity. © 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
