An eco-friendly synthesis of highly functionalized epoxides and their incorporation into an organocatalytic multicomponent approach are reported. For this, a modified class of diarylprolinol silyl ethers was designed to enable high catalytic activity in an environmentally benign solvent system. The one-pot procedure showed great efficiency in promoting stereoselective multicomponent transformations in a tandem, `green' fashion. Because of its non-residual, efficient and selective character, this synthetic design shows promise for large-scale applications in both diversity and target-oriented syntheses. (AU)
