Mechanism of modifying skeletal copper catalyst for asymmetric hydrogenation

  • 22 Accesses


  1. 1.

    Copper tartrate complexes that partially go into solution are formed on the surface of a copper catalyst when skeletal copper is modified with (2R,3R)-(+)-tartaric acid.

  2. 2.

    The character of the modifier-catalyst bond is close to the character of the modifier-metal bond in the corresponding complex.
