Abstract

Modern experiments have offered alternative interpretations on the symmetry of chiral dirhodium(II) carboxylate complexes and its relationship to their level of enantioselectivity. So, this contribution is to provide an insight on how the knowledge around the structure of these catalysts has evolved with a particular emphasis on the impact of this knowledge on enantioselectivity prediction and catalyst design.
