What is it about?

We demonstrate in this publication how a chiral POM, in which only the inorganic framework is chiral, induces good enantioselectivities in C-C bond formation.

Why is it important?

Usually, organic-inorganics are chiral due to the organic side chain. We are demonstrating that the chiral inorganic part alone is enough!
