Asymmetric Catalysis:


  Prof. Qilin Zhou has developed a new type of chiral ligands with spirobiindane skeleton. The chiral spiro ligands are highly efficient for the catalytic asymmetric hydrogenations, carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions, and carbene insertion reactions. Chiral spiro ligands have been commercialized and widely used in the syntheses of chiral compounds and the productions of chiral drugs.
