Chiral Lewis acids and Lewis bases catalyze the α amination and the α oxygenation of aldehydes, ketones, and esters (see scheme). This is a powerful way to directly introduce a heteroatom adjacent to a carbonyl group, and this reaction provides access to important enantiomerically pure building blocks such as α-amino acids.
