Development of a new anionic phosphate catalyst ~ Merging structural chemistry and catalytic chemistry ~
A group of chemists led by Professor Takashi Ooi and Associate Professor Daisuke Uraguchi, has developed a new chiral anionic phosphate compound, which acts as an asymmetric catalyst for carbon-carbon bond formation in high efficiency.
