The secret of their success is the durability of their carbon-phosphorus bond.
Included are stereoselective oxidation and reduction methods; stereoselective additions; cyclizations; metatheses and different types of rearrangements; asymmetric transition-metal-catalyzed, organocatalyzed, and biocatalytic reactions; methods for the formation of carbon-heteroatom and heteroatom-heteroatom bonds like asymmetric hydroamination and reduction amination, carboamination and alkylative cyclization, cycloadditions with carbon-heteroatom bond formation, and stereoselective halogenations; and methods for the formation of carbon-sulfur and carbon-phosphorus bonds and asymmetric sulfoxidation.
