o-Quinodimethane Atropisomers: Enantioselective Synthesis and Stereospecific Transformation

Jianyang and Andreas successfully established the enantioselective synthesis of atropisomeric oQDMs (o-quinodimethanes) and were able to demonstrate their viability for highly stereoselective transformations. Many congratulations!

Synthesis of Atropisomeric Two-Axis Systems by the Catalyst-Controlled syn- and anti-Selective Arene-Forming Aldol Condensation

Very well done Daniel and many congratulations. This stereodivergent approach allows the programmed one-step synthesis of all four feasible atropisomeric two-axis systems.

Stereoselective Synthesis of Atropisomeric Acridinium Salts by the Catalyst-Controlled Cyclization of ortho-Quinone Methide Iminiums

Many congratulations to Xingxing for establishing a stereoselective route to atropisomeric acridinium salts by a Friedel-Crafts electrocyclization of ortho-quinone methide iminiums by means of ion-pairing catalysis.
