Abstract

original image

The so-called “Bird's Nest” (the framework of the Beijing National Stadium as depicted on the cover), bears a resemblance to the rigid porous catalyst constructed for highly efficient heterogeneous asymmetric organocatalysis by W. Wang et al., reported in their Communication on page 6718 ff. The chiral porous polymer containing the Jørgensen–Hayashi catalyst shows excellent activity in the asymmetric Michael addition reaction.
