The kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols was examined by new chiral DMAP derivatives, which can readily be prepared by the Ugi multicomponent reaction in a one-pot operation. The initial screening of DMAP derivatives indicated that the catalyst bearing L-valine with an S configuration at the α-position of amide showed the best stereoselectivity factor. After the reaction conditions were optimized with (S,S)-4a in the kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols, various acyclic and cyclic secondary alcohols could be resolved with an s-factor of up to 12.
