In situ synthesis of chiral oxazaborolidine catalyst by using (1S, 2R)-(-)-cis-1-amino-2-indanol, tetrabutylammonium borohydride and methyl iodide is described. Various borane reduction systems have been studied. Application of (1S, 2R)-(-)-cis-1-amino-2-indanol along with tetrabutylammonium borohydride and methyl iodide to reduce prochiral ketones to the corresponding alcohols with enantiomeric excess up to 96 % is reported.
