BOC Sciences Has Big Presence in Chiral Ligand Design for Asymmetric Catalysis

BOC Sciences announces to debut its chiral ligand design technology for researchers involved with asymmetric catalysis.

Long Island City, United States - July 18, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

BOC Sciences, the US-based chemical vendor, announces to debut its chiral ligand design technology for researchers involved with asymmetric catalysis on July 18, 2019, in a hope to identify and discover innovative drug candidates more effortlessly.

Since catalytic asymmetric synthesis has been one of the most active research areas in chemistry, the development of efficient chiral catalysts is therefore of paramount significance in asymmetric catalysis. In most cases, ligands design in asymmetric catalysis is guided by several simple concepts and principles. C2-symmetric ligands have dominated the field for a long time before the emergence and application of nonsymmetrical modular P, N-ligands, which have been successfully used in various metal-catalyzed reactions and, in many cases, have better performance than the P,P- or N,N-ligands.

“Despite the fact that many chiral ligands have been developed in the past decades, the most efficient catalysts are derived from a few core structures, called ‘privileged chiral catalysts’ such as chiral diphosphines, salen derivatives and bisoxazolines,” says Mr. Barron Jones, the Marketing Chief of BOC Sciences. “These privileged ligands families possess characteristics that lead to the induction of high stereoselectivities in their catalytic reactions. Consequently, the syntheses and design of chiral ligands have evolved into a rapidly growing area of research, attracting the attention of an increasing number of chemists from various disciplines.”

However, although impressive progress has been made in this field, the design of suitable chiral ligands for a particular application still remains a formidable task. The complexity of most catalytic processes makes it impossible to adopt a purely rational approach based on mechanistic and structural criteria. Therefore, most new chiral catalysts are still carried out empirically, relying more on chance, intuition, and systematic screening.

“Luckily, the mechanism of certain reactions such as Rh-catalyzed hydrogenation (1, 2) or Pd-catalyzed allylic substitution (3, 4). This allows at least a semi-rational approach to catalyst development. Our seasoned scientists are capable of greatly facilitating the development of new chiral ligands, using the useful general concepts developed during the last three decade, even in the absence of mechanistic information,” further adds Mr. Jones.

Currently, chiral N-heterocyclic carbene ligands, chiral anionic ligands and chiral phosphorus ligands are readily available at BOC Sciences. In fact, chiral ligand design is just part of a collective chiral synthesis methods, in addition to chiral auxiliaries, chiral building blocks, chiral resolution, etc.

Ukrainian leader felt Trump pressure before taking office

May 25, 2020

KYIV, Ukraine — More than two months before the phone call that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Ukraine's newly elected leader was already worried about pressure from the U.S. president to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Volodymyr Zelenskiy gathered a small group of advisers on May 7 in Kyiv for a meeting that was supposed to be about his nation's energy needs. Instead, the group spent most of the three-hour discussion talking about how to navigate the insistence from Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for a probe and how to avoid becoming entangled in...

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

May 25, 2020

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

The Latest: British govt insists there is Brexit progress

May 25, 2020

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 10 a.m. The British government says talks with the European Union are making progress, despite the lack of a breakthrough overnight. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office says talks are resuming Wednesday after a "constructive" session that lasted late into the night in Brussels. Johnson is eager to strike a deal at an EU summit starting Thursday so the U.K. can leave the bloc in good order on the scheduled date of Oct. 31. But both sides say gaps remain over plans for maintaining an open...

Bulgarian prime minister condemns soccer racism

May 25, 2020

SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov condemned the racist behavior of his country's soccer fans on Tuesday, a day after the national team played England in a European Championship qualifying match. Local fans made Nazi salutes and directed monkey noises at the black players on England's national team. England won 6-0, but the match was halted twice in an effort to stop the abuse. "It is unacceptable that Bulgaria, one of the most tolerant countries in the world where people of different ethnicities live in peace, to be associated with racism and xenophobia," Borissov wrote in a post...

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

May 25, 2020

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....
