While many carbonyl compounds are used in the Petasis reaction, glyoxylic acid is certainly among the most frequently used of substrates. It provides easy access to α-amino acids, a class of compounds that are essential in nature and organic synthesis. Ethyl glyoxylate has also been used successfully in such processes.[‌18‌‌20‌] The use of a copper catalyst increases reactivity, thus allowing couplings that have previously failed.[‌20‌] With N-phenylimino amides, more severe experimental conditions are required.[‌21‌]
