Efficient small-molecule organocatalysis of asymmetric acyl-transfer reactions is a young field only a decade old. This highlight article reviews successes in this area with a focus on readily prepared aminopyridine-derived chiral catalysts for the kinetic resolution of sec-alcohols and a range of other synthetically useful transformations.

Keywords: pyridine, asymmetric synthesis, acyl-transfer, nucleophilic catalysis, nucleophile, Organocatalysis
