Helical mesoporous silica as an inorganic heterogeneous chiral trigger for asymmetric autocatalysis with amplification of enantiomeric excess

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mesoporous silica has been used as a heterogeneous support for catalysts; however, asymmetric induction by the helicity of inorganic mesoporous silica itself has not yet been achieved. P- and M-helical mesoporous silica was found to act as a chiral inorganic trigger for asymmetric autocatalysis to afford (S) and (R)-pyrimidyl alkanol with >99.5% ee, respectively.
