A microwave-assisted method was developed for the synthesis of aldol adducts using RuCl 3 .nH 2 O-BINAP as an efficient catalyst. Important advantages of this technology include environmentally benign condition, highly accelerated rate of the reaction with an improvement in the chemoselectivity and quality of the products.
