Ligand denticity controls enantiomeric preference in DNA-based asymmetric catalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

DNA-based catalysis can be used to control the enantioselectivity of copper-catalysed Diels–Alder and Friedel–Crafts reactions to produce either enantiomer of the product by changing the denticity of the ligand coordinated to the Cu(II) ion, even though the DNA adopts a right handed helical conformation only.
