Teaching a middled-aged nucleophile new tricks: This Minireview provides an overview on the development of silyl ketene imines and their recent applications in catalytic, enantioselective reactions. The unique structure of ketene imines allow a diverse range of reactivity patterns and provide solutions to existing challenges in the enantioselective construction of quaternary stereogenic carbon centers and cross-benzoin adducts (see scheme; Pg=protecting group, Y=OPg).
