From Corrin Chemistry to Asymmetric Catalysis - A Personal Account
31 December 1999 (online)
Eschenmoser's research in the area of corrin chemistry served as the starting point for the development of chiral C2-symmetric semicorrins and related ligands, specifically designed for the enantiocontrol of metal-catalyzed reactions. During the last few years, these ligands have found a remarkable variety of applications in asymmetric catalysis. More recently, we have extended our work from semicorrins and bisoxazolines to non-symmetric phosphinooxazolines, which also proved to be highly versatile ligands for asymmetric catalysis.
