Computational Catalyst Design

Some catalysts we have under development are A, an inherently chiral ansa-bridged tetrahydroindenyl zirconocene that is a very efficient catalyst for the asymmetric hydrosilylation of aryl alkyl ketones, the sterically-biased ethano-bridged zirconocene B that should mediate chiral diene cyclozirconation, and the bridged Rh(II)-carboxylate C, which we predict will effect enantioselective C-H insertion.
