Abstract A new set of reaction conditions has been established to facilitate the copper-catalyzed enantioselective 1,4-reduction of β-(acylamino)acrylates toward a selection of β-alkyl-β-amino acid derivatives in high yields and with uniformly high ee values (up to 99\%) irrespective of the use of (E)- or (Z)-substrates.
