The mechanism of the dipeptide (S)-pro-(S)-asp catalyzed intermolecular aldol reaction with acetone as the donor and three aromatic aldehydes (benzaldehyde, p-methyl benzaldehyde and p-nitrobenzaldehyde) as the acceptors was studied by means of density functional theory (DFT) at the level of B3LYP/6-31G(d,p). The calculated results showed that there were four steps in the reaction path: (i) the nu ...
