        The asymmetric cross-aldol reaction of dichloroacetaldehyde with   aldehyde pronucleophiles proceeds in the presence of a   trifluoromethyl-substituted diarylprolinol to afford   γ,γ-dichloro-β-hydroxy aldehydes in good yield with excellent   enantioselectivity. The obtained products are useful synthetic   intermediates; they were successfully converted to form chiral   alkynes and dichloroalkenes.
