Recent advances in the catalytic asymmetric synthesis of β-amino acids

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this critical review, the progress in catalytic asymmetric synthesis of β-amino acids is discussed, covering the literature since 2002. The review treats transition metal catalysis, organocatalysis and biocatalysis and covers the most important synthetic methods, such as hydrogenation, the Mannich reaction and conjugate additions (160 references).
