Enantioselective Coupling Reactions by Dual Catalysis – CAFETERIA

Submission summary

Artificial metalloenzymes represent a new class of catalysts, which combine the properties of proteins and metal complexes. Such hybrid species associate the main advantages of biocatalysis (highly chemo-, regio- and stereoselective reactions under environmentally benign conditions) and of homogeneous catalysis (a plethora of chemical transformations involve transition metal-catalyzed reactions). In the past ten years, several artificial metalloenzymes have been developed for epoxidation, hydrogenation, oxidation reactions, C-H activation and olefin metathesis... However, until now, no artificial metalloenzyme has been described for enantioselective dual photoredox reactions. Within this ANR program, we aim at developing new hybrid catalysts involving earth-abundant metal complexes for these yet challenging enantioselective reactions in homogeneous catalysis.
