Abstract

Commonly observed, but rarely exploited, is the restricted rotation about C-C single bonds inherent in certain non-biaryl compounds. Recent examples of stereoselective reactions directed by atropisomeric amides (such as that shown below) point the way to a future for these compounds as tools for asymmetric synthesis.
