Asymmetric hydrofunctionalization of minimally functionalized alkenes via earth abundant transition metal catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

In recent years, earth-abundant transition metal catalysts have been used to make great achievements on homogenous catalysis, including the field of enantioselective hydrofunctionalization of alkenes. Minimally functionalized alkenes are a class of challenging substrates for the catalytic asymmetric hydrofunctionalization reactions. This review summarizes the advances of the highly enantioselective (≥90% ee) hydrofunctionalization reactions of minimally functionalized alkenes using earth-abundant transition metals (iron, cobalt, nickel, copper, titanium and zirconium) as catalysts.
