Abstract

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.
