Abstract

The cover picture shows structures that represent three different ways of making phosphorus-based ligand libraries: modular synthesis, solid-phase synthesis and formation of ligands by assembly of smaller building blocks. These ligand libraries are important for the rapid identification of new catalysts for (asymmetric) conversions. In this Microreview on p. 2939 ff J. N. H. Reek et al. show examples that illustrate these strategies.
