Reaction of menthylmagnesium chloride with pyridine-2-carbaldehyde gives a mixture of four isomeric chiral menthyl- and neomenthyl-substituted pyridylcarbinols which were fully characterised by a combination of spectroscopic and X-ray crystallographic methods. All of these alcohols catalyse the addition of diethylzinc to benzaldehyde, but with disappointing enantioselectivities.
