The rest is history: Teruaki Mukaiyama developed three directed cross-aldol reactions, which were mediated by silyl enol ethers, boron enolates, and tin(II) enolates. These reactions had an immense impact on the stereoselective construction of acyclic polyoxygenated carbon frameworks. This Minireview provides a look at the history of the three directed cross-aldol reactions and portrays the early stages of their development.
