This review introduces the research topic of magnesium catalysts in asymmetric synthesis considering that magnesium salts are efficient catalysts in many basic chemical transformations the design and development of novel catalytic strategies for this abundant source are highly attractive this review highlights the progress in this area and provides insightful discussions of the catalytic . Iwao ojima phd a world renowned leader in asymmetric catalysis medicinal chemistry and drug discovery is the distinguished professor of chemistry and the director of the institute of chemical biology and drug discovery at the state university of new york at stony brook he is a recipient of numerous awards including the arthur c cope scholar award acs the chemical society of japan . Because of the lower rotation barriers the synthesis of these compounds is a challenging task furthermore the status of the limited structure type of chiral anilide constrains the latent capacity of the c n axis as a chiral source in the application of asymmetric synthesis. Spirocycles provide an exciting platform to develop and understand the reactivity and selectivity for a wide variety of catalysts while affording diverse strategies to access molecules with important applications this review features recent examples in which a spirocenter is formed within the key step of a catalytic asymmetric process in either an intramolecular or intermolecular fashion
