Conclusions and Future Outlooks

Abstract

It is somehow difficult to give a general conclusion to a thesis made of single projects that are different between each other. To do that, we must keep in mind the leitmotiv of the entire work: organocatalysis.

It is somehow difficult to give a general conclusion to a thesis made of single projects that are different between each other. To do that, we must keep in mind the leitmotiv of the entire work: organocatalysis.

As stated in the preface, we wanted to develop new reactivities and achieve specific structural features in a molecule by means of asymmetric organocatalysis and we can certainly conclude that we succeded in our purpose. This elaborate added yet another small piece to this vast and promising branch of chemistry. We contributed with new structures and reactions in a clean, practical and efficient way, in agreement with the principles of organocatalysis.

In spite of the good results we obtained, there are still countless applications for our products and many possible outlooks in the field of organic catalysis. For instance, further experiments are in progress in our own laboratory for the use of the atropisomeric diol 245 as a chiral ligand together with other projects, all exploiting the unlimited possibilities that organocatalysis offers.
