Asymmetric organocatalyzed Morita-Baylis-Hillman reactions

The use of organocatalyst to promote the Morita-Baylis-Hillman (MBH) and aza-MBH reaction is an asymmetric and atom-economic way to obtain functionalized allylic alcohols or amines respectively, which have recently been well exploited, providing access to chiral densely functionalized products, which are valuable building blocks that can be further applied in the synthesis of complex natural products.
