Pores that put your reaction in a spin! A recoverable mesoporous silica exhibits excellent catalytic activity and enhanced enantioselectivity for the reduction of α-cyano and α-cyanoacetophenones that ascribes the synergistic effect of its phase-transfer functionalized cetyltrimethylammonium bromide and confined chiral organoiridium catalytic nature.
