Description of the thesis topic
The aim is to develop new chiral catalysts based on transition metals and possessing an N-heterocyclic carbene ligand (NHC) containing axial chirality. In an original and unique way, the complexes will be prepared from achiral precursors. The complexes will therefore be obtained in an enantiomerically pure manner after a step of separation by chiral HPLC on the preparative scale. The design of the structures of the NHCs will be carried out thanks to DFT calculations carried out a priori. New chiral catalysts will be studied in new enantioselective transformations.
