The chiral mesoporous zeolite ITQ-37 is known to catalyze the acetalization of aldehydes but, to date, no asymmetric heterogeneously catalyzed reactions have been developed that exploit the zeolite's chirality. This Minireview explores reasons for the lack of enantioselective applications for chiral zeolites and, with reference to ITQ-37, discusses the design of chiral solids to catalyze enantioselective transformations.
