Chiral ligands

Chiral ligands are a specially adapted ligands used for asymmetric synthesis. These ligands are an enantiopure organic compounds which combine with a metal centre by chelation to form the asymmetric catalysts. This catalyst engages in a chemical reaction and transfers its chirality to the reaction product which as a result also becomes chiral. They are widely used in organic laboratories in numerous different types of asymmetric reactions.
