Carbonyl compounds are of paramount importance in the formation of C-C bonds and metal-ion control of their reactivity offers a way to promote, inhibit, or control such reactions [1]. The coordination of the oxygen atom of a carbonyl compound to a metal center is likely to modify the reactivity of that group. Products formally derived by attack at the carbonyl group may arise either by direct attack at the carbon atom or by attack at the metal followed by attack at carbon by the coordinated nucleophile. There has been a debate over the relative importance of these two competing mechanisms in biological and biomimetic systems. These two mechanisms may well both be operative in some cases. The principal reactions of carbonyl compounds are of two types: The first type is that in which the nucleophile reacts with the electrophilic carbon atom of a carbonyl group to generate a new tetrahedral center (Figure 1).
