This lecture will discuss the advent and development of asymmetric organocatalysis in my laboratory. As part of this overview, we will explore concepts of chemical reactivity, catalysis, and the asymmetry of organic molecules. We will examine the impact of organocatalysis on modern synthetic chemistry and explore real-world applications of this technology. We will discuss the ways in which organocatalysis created a bridge to the development of a new field of research in our lab: visible light photoredox catalysis. Last, we will look to the future and consider how organocatalysis may continue to impact scientific research and society.
