• derivatives
  • A series of (S)-proline and (5)-histidine derivatives were also investigated as an alternative to the catalytic system (S)-proline/imidazole for the asymmetric Baylis-Hillman reaction, providing an enantiomeric excess of 22% ee (R) with the 2-(2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorobenzamido)-(5)-histidine methyl ester derivative.

  • synthetic
  • The use of active methylene reagents in asymmetric catalysis allows interesting and wide synthetic applications for the preparation of highly elaborated enantioenriched compounds. (eurekaselect.com)
  • The wide use of synthetic chiral molecules as single enantiomers pharma products, as both electronic and optical devices and also as biological function probes has eventually turned the asymmetric catalysis process as a prominent research area. (tutorvista.com)
  • processes
  • We aim to develop fundamentally new and ground-breaking strategies to asymmetric catalysis via the intermediacy of light-mediated redox processes and excited-state reactivity patterns. (iit.it)
