A new door is open! Conceptually new organocatalytic enantioselective 1,6-addition reactions have recently been uncovered by the groups of Jørgensen, Alexakis, and Stephens. Key to their success was the design of appropriate organocatalyts and Michael acceptors with unique reactivities, which lead to highly regioselective and enantioselective products.
