Four decades since Mukaiyama's first reports on the use of silicon and boron enolates in directed aldol reactions, this highly controlled carbon–carbon bond-forming method has been developed into a powerful tool for natural product synthesis. A number of representative total syntheses that demonstrate the impact of the Mukaiyama aldol reaction are described and the underlying mechanistic rationale that determines the stereochemical outcomes is discussed.
