A new chiral iron porphyrin-based catalyst performed α-methylstyrene stereoselective cyclopropanation with excellent yields (up to 99%), enantio- and diastereoselectivities (ee(trans) up to 87%, trans/cis ratios up to 99 : 1) and outstanding TON and TOF values (up to 20,000 and 120,000 h(-1) respectively).
