Recent advances on N-heterocyclic carbene catalyzed achiral synthesis

Abstract

N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) have emerged as powerful and elegant organocatalysts in a variety of newly developed and unprecedented enantioselective transformations due to the unique umpolung capacity. As a supplementary of convertional enantioselective organocatalysis, NHC-induced non-asymmetric catalysis gradually aroused more interest in recent years. Herein, this review aims to reveal the recent developments in NHC-promoted non-asymmetric umpolung transformations resulting in the expeditious construction of versatile achiral natural heterocycles, carbocycles and acylated products.
