Abstract

This Minireview describes organocatalytic kinetic resolution (OCKR) that has evolved on the basis of using small organic catalysts through enamine/iminium ion, N-heterocyclic carbene, and hydrogen-bonding catalysis. The review includes the use of recent methodologies for which the evolution of OCKR mainly involves creating new stereogenic center(s) in functionalized products through the formation of a C-C, C-N, C-O, C-X, or C-S bond. The combination of OCKR with sequential reactions and its association with desymmetrization and dynamic kinetic resolution are also described.
