  • Catalytic asymmetric synthesis the synthesis of compound that favors the formation of a specific enantiomer or diastereomer via catalysis synthetic methods. Enantioselective synthesis is a key process in modern chemistry and is particularly important in the field of pharmaceuticals, as the different enantiomers or diastereomers of a molecule often have different biological activity.
