Catalytic enantioselective electrocyclic cascades

Author affiliations


A catalytic enantioselective electrocyclic cascade leads to the construction of topologically complex systems comprising multiple rings with up to three stereocentres. This phase-transfer catalysed process offers a new strategy for the rapid and enantioselective generation of complex products bearing all-carbon quaternary stereogenic centres.
