C–H···O Non-Classical Hydrogen Bonding in the Stereomechanics of Organic Transformations: Theory and Recognition
Abstract : This manuscript describes the role of non-classical hydrogen bonds (NCHBs), specifically C–H···O interactions, in modern synthetic organic transformations. Our goal is to point out the seminal examples where C–H···O interactions have been invoked as a key stereocontrolling element and to provide predictive value in recognizing future and/or potential C–H···O interactions in modern transformations.
