Sterling have licensed and continued to develop the Jacobsen Co salen kinetic resolution catalyst technology. We have now optimised the kinetic resolution catalyst to a fourth generation version.

Key Kinetic Resolution Catalyst Features:

  • Ultra low catalyst loading (0.001mol%)

  • Typical e.e. > 99.8%

  • Increased reactivity, more robust with variable raw material input quality

  • Enables the application of less reactive nucleophiles to kinetic resolution

  • More robust with varying epoxide functional groups

  • Delivering new and innovative solutions to customers synthetic challenges, with excellent purity and improved economics
