Enantioselective Catalytic Dendrimers

The development of chiral transition metal complexes for asymmetric catalysis has seen the concomitant emergence of strategies for their recovery and recyclability in order to render these catalysts economically interesting for industrial applications. In particular, the synthesis of enantioselective metallodendrimers is an interesting approach that combines the advantages of both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis without violating the highly active and stereoselective properties of the parent catalyst. In this chapter, a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in enantioselective catalytic dendrimers is given, with an emphasis on the catalytic and recyclability properties of these macromolecules.
