Recent results in the area of asymmetric catalysis using organometallic catalysts, particularly for asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of ketones and imines. We study the versatility and the kinetics of the reactions, and are always seeking new applications.
For examples of applications of the tethered complexes by other academic groups see:
