Discovery of Sustainable Organocatalytic Reactions: Expansion of Substrate/Catalysts Scope

The discovery of in situ-generated novel reactive primary catalytic species like enamines, iminium ions, dienamines, trienamines, and aminoenynes from the reaction of a variety of carbonyls with a catalytic amount of chiral primary- or secondary amines or amino acids will be discussed. Their direct applications in a variety of selective green bond formations to furnish the chiral functionalized molecules, drugs, drug-like molecules, natural products, and pharmaceuticals will be discussed.
