Organocatalysts: A powerful tool for asymmetric Michael addition


In recent years, asymmetric organocatalysis has emerged as powerful tools for the synthesis of a variety of chiral molecules. Ready availability of the catalysts, low toxicity, simple operational procedures and mild reaction conditions associated with organocatalysis makes it an attractive method to synthesise diverse complex structures. Here, a short review on the development and applications of chiral organocatalysts for asymmetric Michael addition reactions has been described.
