Bifunctional AgOAc-catalyzed asymmetric reactions

Author affiliations


The discovery and progress of new bifunctional AgOAc-based catalysts for asymmetric reactions is described. In this bifunctional procedure, AgOAc acts as an efficient Lewis acid catalyst as well as a base through the deprotonation of active hydrogen promoted by acetate. The bifunctional strategy offers a great opportunity to establish new fundamentals for stereoselective construction of C–C as well as C–N bonds.
