Non-covalent Immobilization

This chapter will focus on the use of non-covalent strategies to support enantioselective catalysts. Although most frequently used, covalent bonding to insoluble supports requires a noticeable synthetic effort to introduce a function allowing the catalyst–support bonding. In general, non-covalent immobilization does not require this modification and is simpler to use. The strategies to avoid leaching and the possibility to modify the stereochemical results by controlling catalyst–support interactions will be reviewed.
