Abstract

Symmetry plays a fundamental role in chiral recognition and enantioselective catalysis. Porphyrins possess a number of structural features that make them attractive for the stereocontrol of chiral recognition and metal-catalyzed asymmetric reactions. This article is a brief account of our studies on chiral recognition and enantioselective catalysis by optically active metalloporphyrins. Some of the studies on chiral recognition and asymmetric catalysis by metalloporphyrins performed by others have also been included when useful.
Keywords: chiral recognition; asymmetric catalysis; asymmetric oxidation; ruthenium porphyrin; iron porphyrin; manganese porphyrin chiral recognition; asymmetric catalysis; asymmetric oxidation; ruthenium porphyrin; iron porphyrin; manganese porphyrin
