The major emphasis here is on enantioselective reactions using asymmetric catalysts. Examples from the total synthesis of various natural and unnatural targets validates the utility of the synthetic methods. Specific topics discussed: cycloaddition, cycloisomerization and sigmatropic rearrangement reactions, allylic and carbonyl functionalization reactions, metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, desymmetrization, fluorination, polymerization and sulfide oxidation reactions.
