This thesis describes the applications to asymmetric synthesis of the highly diastereoselective carbon-carbon bond forming reactions of α,β-unsaturated acyl ligands bound to the chiral iron auxiliary [(η5-C5H5)Fe(CO)(PPh3)].
Chapter 1 briefly reviews the use of chiral auxiliaries in asymmetric synthesis.
Chapter 2 discusses the conformation of [(η5-C5H5)Fe(CO)(PPh3)COCH3] with re...Expand abstract
