Pinpoint creation of chirality by organic catalysts

A new catalytic system has been developed that enables highly stereoselective synthesis of amino acid derivatives. A slight structural change in this amino acid-derived organic catalyst leads to pinpoint inversion of stereochemistry. This strategy is expected to become a powerful tool to synthesize various molecules that contain multiple stereocenters in high selectivity and efficiency.
