Iron catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of ketones.


Chiral molecules, such as alcohols, are vital for the manufacturing of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, fragrances, and novel materials. These molecules need to be produced in high yield and high optical purity and preferentially catalytically. Among all the asymmetric catalytic reactions, asymmetric hydrogenation with H2 (AH) is the most… (More)
