Abstract

In today’s society, “hybrid” is the important concept for new developments and advances. For one example, hybrid cars, the combination of a gas engine and an electric motor, are running the road as the one of alternative vehicles for our environment. Similarly, in a scientific world, stereoselective hybrid catalysts combining the catalytic power of a metal complex with the exquisite chirality of a biomolecule have received attention as alternative tools for the synthesis of enatiomerically pure compounds. Considering the broad scope of transformations enabled by metal-catalyzed reactions and the vast diversity of natural and artificial biomolecules, this combination seems to be a very promising strategy.
