Excellent forecast: The selectivities for a set of chiral catalysts were predicted by methods derived from quantum mechanical molecular interaction fields that were applied to ground-state structures rather than transition-state structures. The predictions for the asymmetric addition of Et2Zn to PhCHO are in remarkable agreement with the experimental results (equation image=0.87).
