New three-component domino reactions have been discovered. The reactions are easy to perform (see scheme; MW=microwave irradiation) and proceed with fast rates, which makes work-up convenient. Most of the multiple stereocenters and the geometry are controlled well. The stereochemistry has been unequivocally determined by X-ray structural analysis.
