As shown in entry 9, isovaleraldehyde also led to the relatively high enantio- and diastereoselectivities (syn/anti = 86/14, 68% ee) though the yield was low (12%).
But when the selenium-77 resonance of the new mixture is monitored, two peaks--with areas proportional to the original enantio- meric ratio--are observed.
We anticipate that successful realisation of this strategy will allow the wealth of radical chemistry to be applied to valuable basic heterocycles with new-found region- and enantio- control.

They are regio-, enantio- and stereoselective, can carry out reactions with a high atom efficiency, work at lower operating temperatures than conventional organic transformations, and create less solvent waste.
