Beyond classical immobilized catalysts, metal–ligand polymers self-assembled through coordination are easily prepared, have a robust chiral structure, and display a high density of catalytically active units. These heterogeneous catalysts give excellent results for enantioselective reactions and can be recovered and recycled without significant loss of selectivity.
