(Chemical Equation Presented) An operationally simple and recoverable fluorous CBS methodology was developed. The in situ-generated fluorous oxazaborolidine efficiently catalyzed the reduction of ketones with high enantioselectivity and reactivity. The subsequent recycling of the fluorous prolinol precatalyst was achieved by fluorous solid-phase extraction.
