Recent advances in asymmetric organocatalytic conjugate addition of arenes and hetero-arenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The asymmetric organocatalytic conjugate addition reaction of various nucleophiles to the unsaturated acceptor provides an important route for the synthesis of valuable chiral entities. Recently, aromatic and hetero-aromatic compounds have been successfully used as nucleophiles in the enantioselective conjugate addition reaction. This review provides an overview on the recent developments made in organocatalytic enantioselective conjugate addition of arenes and hetero-arenes to unsaturated acceptors.
