This volume of the series consists of two chapters, on catalytic enantioselective aldol addition reactions, and benzylic activation and stereochemical control in reactions of tricarbonyl(arene)chromium complexes.
These shared reactions include aldol additions, which bring new source molecules into the cycles, as well as beta and oxidative decarboxylations, which release the molecules as carbon dioxide (CO2) which is an integral gas to early atmosphere formation.
Topics include stereoselective acetate aldol reactions, the vinylogous Mukaiyama aldo reaction, organocatalyzed aldol reactions, supersilyl protective groups, asymmetric induction, polypropionate synthesis via substrate-controlled stereoselective aldol couplings of chiral fragments, applications of oxazolidinethiones and thiazolidinethiones, and enzyme-catalyzed aldol additions.
