Enantioselective catalysis with chiral complexes immobilized on nanostructured supports.

In this tutorial review, we discuss how recycling and stability advantages alone are frequently not sufficient to justify the effort necessary to immobilize chiral complexes unless additional advantages are found. Nanostructured solids with well-controlled surfaces and pores may act as nanoreactors, hindering or even blocking some of the reaction channels… CONTINUE READING
