Asymmetric Catalysis & Organoboron Chemistry

Asymmetric catalysis is a type of catalysis in which a chiral catalyst directs the formation of a chiral compound such that the formation of one particular stereoisomer is favored. Since the catalyst is not consumed in this process it may be used in a substoichiometric quantity – potentially improving efficiency and avoiding waste.
 
Organoboron compounds are chemical compounds of boron and carbon that are organic derivatives of BH3, for example, trialkyl boranes. Organoboron chemistry or organoborane chemistry is the chemistry of these compounds. Organoboron compounds are important reagents in organic chemistry enabling many chemical transformations, the most important one called hydroboration.
