Radical route for the synthesis of chiral molecules

A new methodology has been developed for the selective formation of chiral molecules. The work combines two strategies which require very mild reaction conditions -- enantioselective iminium ion chemistry and photoredox catalysis -- to set quaternary carbon stereocentres with high enantioselectivity.
