Asymmetric aza-Michael Addition The back cover shows an array of asymmetric organocatalysts and the C[BOND]N bond-containing enantioenriched products formed from nitrogen-based nucleophiles and a,bunsaturated carbonyl systems. In their “Minireview Advances and Applications in Organocatalytic Asymmetric aza-Michael Addition” on p. 917 ff., F. Y. Kwong, A. S. C. Chan, P. Li et al. describe progress in the field of inter- and intramolecular aza-Michael additions, covering catalysis with primary and secondary amines and Brnsted acids, as well as miscellaneous catalyst systems, such as cinchona alkaloid derivatives and phase-transfer catalysts.
