CHAPTER 1

Asymmetric Domino Reactions Based on the Use of Chiral Substrates

This chapter updates the recent developments in asymmetric one-, two-, and multicomponent domino reactions which involve chiral substrates. It is divided into two sections, dealing successively with one- and two-component domino reactions, and with multicomponent domino reactions. The first section is subdivided into eight sections, describing domino reactions with an anionic primary step, domino reactions based on cationic sequences, domino reactions initiated by a pericyclic primary step, domino reactions based on carbene sequences, palladium-catalysed domino reactions, ruthenium-catalysed domino reactions, gold-catalysed domino reactions, and finally miscellaneous domino reactions. The second section of the chapter is subdivided into 10 sections, dealing with multicomponent reactions initiated by the Michael addition, multicomponent reactions based on the Hantzsch reaction, multicomponent reactions based on the Ugi reaction, multicomponent reactions based on the Strecker reaction, multicomponent reactions based on the Mannich reaction, multicomponent reactions initiated by an allylation reaction, multicomponent reactions based on the Passerini reaction, multicomponent reactions based on the Biginelli reaction, multicomponent reactions based on the Petasis reaction, and finally miscellaneous multicomponent reactions. The power and utility of these reactions are well illustrated by their application in the synthesis of a wide range of structurally diverse and complex chiral molecules.
