Hot Perspective: Organocatalytic enantioselective catalysis

Ramon Rios, from the University of Barcelona, reviews the growing use of organocatalyts for asymmetric allylic substitution…….

Lately, the use of Morita–Baylis–Hillman (MBG) carbonates and acetates in organocatalysis has grown exponentially opening new gates for the synthesis of C–C or C-heteroatom bonds in an enantioselective fashion and under mild conditions. This work provides access to many highly functionalized structures. In his recent Hot Perspective article, Ramon Rios covers these exciting reactions, paying special attention on the nature of the MBH adduct……
