The search for new metal-catalyzed asymmetric reactions provides some unique insights into the effects imposed on the metal catalysts by chiral ligands. In special cases, the addition of a specific ligand to an existing catalyzed process enables a faster, “ligand-accelerated” asymmetric reaction to occur. This phenomenon of ligand-accelerated catalysis is crucial for the success of several transition metal catalyzed reactions that are now in widespread use among chemists.
