Recent Progress in Heterogeneous Asymmetric Hydrogenation of CO and CC Bonds on Supported Noble Metal Catalysts
Alfons Baiker, Fabian Meemken
The ease of separation, simple regeneration, and the usually high stability of solid catalysts facilitating continuous production processes have stimulated the development of heterogeneous asymmetric hydrogenation catalysis. The simplest and so far most promising strategy to induce enantioselectivity to solid metal catalysts is their modification by chiral organic compounds, as most prominently represented by the cinchona-modified Pt and Pd catalysts for the asymmetric hydrogenation of activated C═O and C═C bonds. In this Review, we provide a systematic account of the research accomplished in the past decade on noble metal-based heterogeneous asymmetric hydrogenation of prochiral C═O and C═C bonds, including all important facets of these catalytic systems. The advances made are critically analyzed, and future research challenges are identified.
