      The highly enantioselective direct Mannich protocol employing   fluoroacetone, p-anisidine, and aldehydes   catalyzed by 4-siloxyproline was developed, allowing efficient   access for pharmaceutically important fluorinated β-amino   ketones. On the basis of DFT calculations and mechanistic probes,   the origin of an unusual reversal of regioselectivity was   unraveled.
