Recent advances in catalytic asymmetric epoxidation using the environmentally benign oxidant hydrogen peroxide and its derivatives

Author affiliations

Abstract

There has been a recent drive to develop asymmetric catalytic methods to produce epoxides using environmentally benign oxidants, especially hydrogen peroxide. This critical review discusses the advances that have been made using both metal-based and organocatalytic homogeneous catalysts (142 references).
