Asymmetric catalysis with peptides

Author affiliations


Over the past decade several peptides have been developed as effective asymmetric catalysts for a range of synthetically useful reactions. Many have properties that are difficult to achieve with other catalysts. The article highlights features that render peptidic organocatalysts unique and attractive for future applications. Challenges such as the design of peptidic catalysts are discussed.
