Abstract

This Microreview illustrates the conceptual evolution ofPauson–Khand-type reactions and the recent advancements in catalyst design and applications. Intra- and intermolecular Pauson–Khand-type reactions, as well as their enantioselective versions, are reviewed. In addition to previous reviews, this article mainly covers literature references on the developments between the late 1990s and early 2009.
