Abstract: Copper-catalyzed reactions include the enantioselective
conjugate addition and the SN2¢ substitution. We describe the genesis
of these reactions, the choice of the primary organometallic reagent,
and our studies on finding new Michael acceptors and new ligands. We
also report on the use of the zinc enolate generated upon conjugate
