Boron-Containing Chiral Auxiliaries

Part of the Topics in Heterocyclic Chemistry book series


Organoboron chemistry has proven its general versatility over the last century. In this chapter, the focus is on boron-containing auxiliaries. First, a short overview of commonly used cyclic compounds is provided, followed by their diastereoselective synthesis in the main part. In six subsections, from cycloadditions to remote-controlled reactions are discussed in detail. Finally, arguably the most prominent transformation of one group of synthesized reagents – the allyl addition – is used to exemplify the broad applicability in asymmetric synthesis and in natural product synthesis in particular.
