      Abstract:

      VanadiumV(salen) complex 3 has been found to be an effective   catalyst for the asymmetric addition of hydrogen cyanide   (generated

      in situ from trimethylsilyl cyanide) to imines. The best results   (up to 81% enantiomeric excess) were obtained for aromatic imines

      in which the nitrogen atom is protected with a benzyl group and   in which the imine bond is not sterically encumbered.
