Abstract

Organocatalysis is often considered to be inherently more sustainable than metal-based catalysis. However, it is necessary to consider the entire system and where possible the entire life cycle for this to be true. This article aims to summarize the most important catalyst classes found within organocatalysis, highlighting important developments along the way, with a particular emphasis on examples that embody the principles of sustainability.
