Abstract

The use of transition organometallic complexes as reagents for the synthesis of complex organic molecules has been under intensive growth and development for several decades, and many organic transformations of profound synthetic potential has been achieved. Particularly, the use of organoiron complexes has been recognized as a powerful tool in the synthetic methodology due to their ability to react with nucleophiles and electrophiles in a stereoselective fashion. The use of NMO as a chemoselective, metal mediated oxidizing agent will be discussed.
