Project Title: Dna-based catalysis - Development of new anchoring systems and application to asymmetric reactions
Summary: In the context of bio-inspired catalysis, DNA-based hybrid catalysis has recently emerged as a particularly attractive tool. Indeed, DNA is an abundant and inexpensive source of chirality. The aim of this project is to develop new anchoring systems with increased specificity. The activity of the newly-formed catalysts will be tested on a variety of synthetic transformations.
