An NMR approach to understanding structure in chiral transition metal complexes is described. The ideas of ″intrusiveness″ and ″rigidity″ in connection with the transfer of chirality are explored. Data from 2-D NMR spectroscopy, and specifically NOESY measurements, are extrapolated to explain how 3,5-dialkyl substituents can enhance enantioselectivity in several reactions.
