Recent Progress in Asymmetric Synthesis and its Facile Access to Environmentally Benign Approach – A Review

Author(s): Abdul Ahad and Maqdoom Farooqui

Asymmetric reactions have experienced a remarkable progress over the past decades. Modern organic synthesis focused on the synthesis of enantiomerically pure molecules by the use of chiral substrates/auxiliaries and enantioselective organocatalysis and reagents. Asymmetric synthesis provides a major synthetic challenge in biological and medicinal chemistry, due to the importance of chiral containing compounds tremendous progress has been made for the formation of new bonds in a stereo and enantio controlled manner. This review details the most practical of the methods available in asymmetric synthesis and its facile access to eco-friendly techniques including cost effectiveness and facile scale-up
