An organocatalytic asymmetric synthesis of spironitrocyclopropanes has been demonstrated starting from 2-arylidene-1,3-indandiones and bromonitroalkanes catalyzed by a cinchona-derived bifunctional organocatalyst. The products were obtained with excellent enantioselectivities, diastereoselectivities and with good yields.
