Summary A significant challenge facing free-radical chemists is in the area of stereocontrol, specifically the ability to control the direction of reagent attack at a prochiral radical. While significant inroads have been made in the area of diastereoselective radical chemistry, less successful have been attempts to provide truly enantioselective processes. This article highlights recent efforts in the area of enantioselective free-radical reduction chemistry and describes how single-enantiomer outcomes are possible when simple enantiopure stannanes are used in conjunction with large, sterically-demanding Lewis acids. Selectivities in excess of 90% are now possible, with one example in excess of 99.5% ee provided.
