The pyrrolidine trifluoro based organocatalyst has been found to be an efficient catalyst for
the synthesis of syn and anti isomer of highly substituted piperidines. The trifluorine is used to trap
syn isomer of functionalized piperidines. The one-pot synthesis via multi-component reaction of
methylacetoacetate, aromatic aldehydes and various amines in ethanol at 80°C condition to afford
pure anti product in excellent yield and pure syn isomer at lower temperature in some cases with moderate
yield of products. At room temperature the product was obtained as syn:anti mixture with anti
isomer as dominant in almost all cases.
