Zirconium-catalyzed enantioselective carboalumination of "unactivated" alkenes as a new synthetic tool for asymmetric carboncarbon bond formation
Abstract: The discovery, methodological developments, including those for separationpurification of chiral flexible primary alcohols, and their applications to the syntheses of some natural products of the titled reaction are discussed.
