Artificial enzyme for asymmetric synthesis using a synthetic chiral polymer

(Toyohashi University of Technology) Cinchona alkaloid derivatives show catalytic activity in various kinds of asymmetric transformations in organic synthesis that are necessary steps in the production of pharmaceuticals. Shinichi Itsuno and his colleagues have successfully synthesized chiral polymers containing a cinchona alkaloid sulfonamide derivative as a repeating unit.
