The field of asymmetric catalysis has progressed rapidly since the early 1980s, as judged by the increasing number of reports each year and the greater frequency with which enantioselective catalysts are employed in industry.1-3 This intense research effort has greatly expanded the variety of reactions that can be performed with good substrate generality and in a highly enantioselective fashion. Despite this remarkable success, most asymmetric catalysts do not meet the criteria required to be… CONTINUE READING
