Chiral catalyst.....2001 Chemistry Nobel Prize was shared by three chemists- Prof. William S. Knowles, Prof. Ryoji Noyori and Prof. K. Barry Sharpless for their work on Chiral Catalysis. With their discoveies, New era of Chiral Catalyst in Asymmetric Synthesis Began! The methodolgies have been industrialized to manufacture optically active important enantiomeric / diastreomeric biologically active molecules!
