Abstract

An insoluble, porous, amorphous, homochiral material based on a polypeptide titanium–phosphonate scaffold with an encapsulated achiralMnIII–salen was prepared and characterized. Consecutive epoxidation and hydration of styrene and its derivatives by aqueous hypochlorite in THF showed the highly enantioselective (>99%) formation of styrene diol derivatives.
