Abstract

In this article, an overview of the investigations on chiral py-containing ligands in asymmetric catalysis that have carrried out in the past years is provided. The ligands are divided into different types based on the number of pyridine moieties present and the way they are connected in the ligands, namely monopyridine, dipyridine (two pyridines connected by a bridge), bipyridine, phen(1,10-phenanthroline), terpyridine and oligopyridine. In each section, the synthetic strategies for each type of ligands are discussed and representative examples are given. Selected important results in asymmetric catalysis are mentioned. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
