Abstract

The search for new chiral ligands to use in asymmetric homogeneous catalysts is motivated in part by the need to use both material and energy resources efficiently. Such chiral catalysts offer in principle a means for highly specific conversions of achiral substrates to chiral products. Such conversions are of potential importance to the industrial production of useful chiral compounds such as drugs, vitamins, flavorings, and fragrances. A summary is presented of work relating to the development of new and improved chiral chelating phosphines for use in asymmetric hydrogenation catalysts.
