Abstract

original image

A hype around organocatalysis: Organocatalysis and hypervalent iodine(III) chemistry are receiving increasing attention in research. A fusion of the two gives rise to interesting synthetic possibilities that benefit from the advantages of both areas. Selected examples combining asymmetric organocatalytic processes and hypervalent iodine reagents for the functionalization of carbonyl compounds are discussed here.
