The Baylis–Hillman reaction: a novel source of attraction, opportunities, and challenges in synthetic chemistry

Author affiliations

Abstract

The Baylis–Hillman reaction is a successful, useful, and atom-economical carbon–carbon bond forming reaction, which has grown from an obscure level to the level of high synthetic popularity due to its operational simplicity and also due to the enormous applications of the Baylis–Hillman adducts in organic synthesis. In this tutorial review, we briefly describe the way this reaction has grown to its present heights and the opportunities, attractions, and challenges the reaction offers with respect to its asymmetric and intramolecular versions, and mechanistic aspects.
