(DHQ)<sub>2</sub>AQN-Catalyzed Asymmetric Substitution of Isatin-Derived Hydrazones with O‑Boc-Protected Morita–Baylis–Hillman Adducts: A Strategy for Synthesizing Enantioenriched Azo Compounds Incorporating an Oxindole Scaffold

The first example for the preparation of enantioenriched azo compounds from hydrazones and Morita–Baylis–Hillman adducts has been developed, affording azo compounds incorporating an oxindole scaffold in up to 91% yield along with a 93% ee value under the catalysis of (DHQ)<sub>2</sub>­AQN.
