DESIGN OF CHIRAL CATALYSTS FOR ASYMMETRIC CATALYSIS

Our laboratory is currently focusing on the development chiral-at-metal complexes for applications in asymmetric catalysis. In this novel class of catalysts, the chirality of the catalysts originates exclusively from a stereogenic metal center (only achiral ligands!). Some members of this class of catalysts, namely bis-cyclometalated iridium and rhodium complexes, are excellent tools to intertwine photochemistry with asymmetric catalysis, whereas chiral-at-ruthenium complexes developed in our laboratory are powerful catalysts for enantioselective C(sp3)-H aminations. Recently, we furthermore demonstrated that earth-abundant metals such as iron are suitable for this approach.
