Valiant catalysis: Hoveyda et al. have developed a set of catalysts derived from valine for enantioselective syntheses. Reagents are inexpensive, allyl additions are scalable, harsh conditions are avoided, and reactions can be performed with 0.25 mol % catalyst in under 6 h at room temperature. The efficiency, economy, selectivity, and simplicity of the transformations and the range of boron reagents look to have sustained impact on future progress in amine and alcohol syntheses.
