    Aha! The preorganocatalyst CH3SCH2Cl/KI was discovered during an investigation into the hydration and hydrolysis reactions of glycals, enol ethers, esters, oximes, O-methyl oximes, and hydrazones in the presence of cyanuric chloride activated dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) as the catalyst. The precatalyst was used in acetalization reactions under wet conditions and a glycosylation reaction that is more diastereoselective than a Ferrier rearrangement.

    I recall you! Highly selective recognition of acidic amino acids, such as glutamic acid and aspartic acid, by a positively charged calixpyridinium is reported.

  5. Iron-Promoted 1,5-Substitution (SN2′′) Reactions of Enyne Acetates and Oxiranes with Grignard Reagents
