Enantioselective Synthesis of Organic Compounds with Optically Active Transition Metal Catalysts and Transition Metal Compounds

  • Henri Brunner
Conference paper


Metabolism in man, animal and plant uses optically active compounds, e.g. L-amino acids, D-sugars etc. This metabolic stereospecificity manifests itself in macroscopic chiral structures such as snail shells, in which high stereoselectivities are observed. Other examples for plants are shown in Fig. 1.
