Acid Catalysis for Asymmetric Synthesis
New reagents and catalysts have unlimited potential for the future of organic synthesis. We have been interested in Lewis and Brønsted acid catalysis for a number of years. In this lecture, I am going to focus on several of these acid and related catalysts from the molecular design and engineering.
