Artificial enzyme for asymmetric synthesis using a synthetic chiral polymer

Enzymes, high-molecular-weight chiral polymeric compounds, are complex biological catalysts. Capture of the substrate molecule, catalyzing the reaction, and release of the product are three important events performed by enzymes. In order to accomplish these important events using a synthetic catalyst, it must necessarily have a large molecular weight. However, synthetic chiral polymers for this purpose have not been designed so far.
