α,α-Dicyanoolefins: versatile substrates in organocatalytic asymmetric transformations

Author affiliations

Abstract

α,α-Dicyanoolefins have emerged as versatile reactants, finding use as vinylogous nucleophiles, Michael acceptors and dienophiles in a variety of organic reactions. In the last few years, the reactivity of α,α-dicyanoolefins has been explored in various asymmetric transformations catalyzed by organocatalysts. In this review, we are presenting the recent advances in asymmetric organocatalytic transformations involving α,α-dicyanoolefins.
