Catalytic asymmetric allylic alkylation employing heteroatom nucleophiles: a powerful method for C–X bond formation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal catalyzed asymmetric allylic alkylation (AAA) reactions have been an extensively studied and fruitful area of research in organic chemistry. The use of heteroatom-centered nucleophiles in this reaction is a powerful method for asymmetric C–X (X = heteroatom) bond formation. This perspective summarizes developments and applications of metal catalyzed AAA reactions employing heteroatom nucleophiles.
