Investigations into the use of solid supports preloaded with base for the asymmetric alkylation of a benzophenone-derived glycine-imine was described. Residual traces of water on the support dramatically accelerated the reactions to complete within a few minutes. The conditions employed in the present synthesis are mild, efficient and general.
