Description
Summary:In this thesis, some methods for the asymmetric synthesis of octahedral metal complexes were developed by using chiral auxiliaries. These chiral auxiliaries are coordinating bidentate ligands which control the metal-centered configuration in the course of ligand exchange reactions or dynamic equilibria. Afterwards, the chiral auxiliaries can be removed in an acid-induced fashion under complete retention of configuration. Additionally, we initially explored the applications of enantiomerically pure octahedral iridium complexes as catalysts for asymmetric transformations. In this direction, we focused on the asymmetric acyl transfer catalysis and synthesized different types of the catalysts for resolving racemic alcohols.
