The work presented in the paper is devoted to the development of the synthesis of the new chiral copper catalysts for
nitroaldol condensation containing tetradentate ligands derived from natural terpenes. Novel chiral copper complexes with nitrogen-containing ligands catalyze the reaction of nitromethane with aldehydes to give nitroalcohol in yields of 45-99% and optical purity of 60% ee.
