Mukaiyama aldol and the Nobel prize winning Sharpless epoxidation, titanium(IV) reveals its utility once again in a recent contribution from the group of Professor Salvatore D. Lepore from the Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton (USA) on stereoretentive and chemoselective halogenations and azidations of hindered secondary sulfonates. “For the first time… CONTINUE READING
