Light on the horizon? Catalytic enantioselective photoreactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

An overview of asymmetric transformations induced by photochemical means in the presence of a substoichiometric amount of external chiral reagent is presented. The main obstacles in achieving asymmetric induction catalytically, and successful examples of ways to overcome these hurdles are discussed.
