- Chiral anion-mediated asymmetric ion pairing chemistry
Jérôme Lacour, Delphine Moraleda
Chem. Commun. 2009, 7073-7089
Chemical reactions and processes often involve cationic reagents, intermediates or products in prochiral or chiral racemic form. To afford instead non-racemic compounds, an asymmetric ion pairing of the cations with chiral anionic counterions can be considered. This review presents recent examples of the synthesis and use of chiral anions for such stereoselective purposes.
