Keywords Organometallic Catalyst, Organic Catalyst, Asymmetric Catalyst
Summary An organometallic catalytic reaction is one of the most utilized methods for synthesis of various organic compounds. The catalytic activities and selectivities are controlled by supporting ligands. Among them, a chiral ligand plays a significant role in asymmetric catalysis to obtain optically pure compounds such as medicinal drugs. Our group is developing novel ligands to activate highly the organometallic catalysts. As an alternative, development of a metal-free organic catalyst is studied. These catalytic systems are considered using quantum chemical calculations.
