Abstract: This thesis describes the photo-assisted, asymmetric cobalt-catalysed [2+2+2] cycloaddition reaction between nitriles and alkynes and the formation of pyridines. The work focussed on the synthesis of axially chiral 1 aryl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydroisoquinolines and related derivatives. Systematic studies of the stability of the differently substituted chiral biaryls were performed by dynamic chiral HPLC.
