Phosphonic acid for chiral reduction
Title of the idea: Chiral reduction with proline phosphonic acid salt
Author of the idea: Ramesha
Email of the author
Key words for search: Proline, chiral, reduction, ketone
Explain briefly the idea

H3PO2 – Has been used for reduction of ketone to secondary alcohol. However, it has not been exploited for the chiral reduction. Potentially one can use L-Proline phosphonicacid for the chiral reduction. This method has several advantage that the whole of proline can be recovered and recycled.
