The invention is a novel family of chiral catalysts for electrophilic addition reactions especially for fluorination. The catalysts are salts including a chiral anionic component a a cationic component. They are chiral, non-racemic compounds that function as phase transfer catalysts in certain asymmetric synthetic organic transformations.
Transform a prochiral center in a compound to an enamtiomerically enriched or enantiomerically pure chiral center.
The ability to selectively transform a prochiral center in a compound to an enantiomerically enriched or enantiomerically pure chiral center has broad application, especially in the agricultural, pharmaceutical and polymer industries.
