From Flat to Chiral: A new approach to asymmetric synthesis

Maulide, Nuno
Homogene Katalyse (Prof. Ben List)
The preparation of chiral, enantiomerically pure substances is a crucial endeavour of chemistry and one of high value to our society. Herein is presented a new approach to asymmetric synthesis, relying on the use of aromatic compounds as feedstocks for the production of enantiomerically pure products relying on clean processes and with minimal amounts of waste.
