Molecular asymmetry represents an outstanding challenge both to theoretical and to preparative chemistry since almost two centuries. The main problem in this field of chemistry is the selective preparation of one of the enantiomers of such asymmetric (chiral) compounds, from symmetric (achiral) precursors. Enantiomers are specular images of each other – structurally identical but different only in the spatial distribution of their components. This field of chemistry is reserved only to the most inventive scientists, due to its enormous difficulties. On the other hand, however, if results can be attained, these are of utmost theoretical importance and practical utility, ranging from the understanding of critical processes in living organisms to the preparation of highly demanded products of pharmaceutical industry. In spite of this exceptional significance, really fundamental new discoveries are very rare in this field. One of such discoveries occurred in 1995, when Kenso Soai (Tokyo University of Science) discovered the asymmetric autocatalysis and shortly later (in 1997) its application to the absolute asymmetric synthesis.
