Over the last few years there has been increasing pressure on organic chemists to devise reactions which are highly selective in order to improve efficiency and reduce costs. In this context enantioselective reactions are particularly important because of the growing demand for optically pure compounds in the pharmaceutical and agro-chemical industries. A number of groups have been examining the possibility of achieving either asymmetric induction or kinetic racemate resolution in phase transfer catalysed and related reactions1–13. One or two analogous resin-supported systems have also been reported14–21. In principle the latter have the advantage, in the long term, of efficiently retaining rare or expensive catalysts for re-use or re-cycling, or indeed for allowing reactions to be conducted continuously in columns.
