VanadiumV(salen) complex 3 has been found to be an effective catalyst for the asymmetric addition of hydrogen cyanide (generated in situ from trimethylsilyl cyanide) to imines. The best results (up to 81% enantiomeric excess) were obtained for aromatic imines in which the nitrogen atom is protected with a benzyl group and in which the imine bond is not sterically encumbered. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
