Summary

This chapter presents recent advances in the field of organocatalyzed addition to nitroolefin, vinyl sulfones, and vinyl selenones. The several modes of activation (enamine/iminium, hydrogen bonding, acidic, basic) are covered, highlighting the opportunity to involve new types of nucleophiles. The most important achievements in this research area include the reactivity of challenging substrates.
