Enantiopure amines are important building blocks with a plethora of applications in the fields of medicine, agriculture and materials. Kinetic resolution (KR) of racemic amines is one of the most important methods for obtaining enantiopure amines. However, KR of amines is little investigated because of their high reactivity and coordinating ability in the corresponding KR of alcohols. Till now, major developments using non-enzymatic catalysts for KR of amines have been extensively achieved by catalytic acylation (or deacylation). Only recently the non-acylation KR of amines is improving. The relatively wide range of different catalytic asymmetric reactions have been employed as strategies for the efficient KR of amines. For some cases, the asymmetric reactions do not involve with nitrogen atoms of racemic substrates. This review aims to introduce the development of the non-acylation KR of amines for the synthesis of enantiopure amines.

Key words: enantiopure amines, kinetic resolution, nonenzymatic, non-acylation, catalytic asymmetric reactions
