Abstract

The asymmetric allylic functionalization of unactivated internal alkenes is an emerging strategy for the conversion of simple unsaturated starting materials into a diverse range of enantioenriched products. This Perspective summarizes the development of reactions wherein a chiral catalyst facilitates the intermolecular stereoselective reaction between an achiral unactivated internal alkene and a reagent.
