  • The various stages from the invention of a ligand class to its technical application are described and illustrated by the case history of the Solvias Josiphos ligands. First, the prerequisites for a so-called “privileged ligand” are discussed, followed by a description of the Josiphos ligand family and their technical synthesis. Then, the catalytic performance of various Josiphos metal complexes in model reactions and in “real world” synthetic applications are summarized in the next two… CONTINUE READING
