Asymmetric catalysis is a type of catalysis in which a chiral catalyst directs the formation of a chiral compound such that formation of one particular stereoisomer is favoured. Since the catalyst is not consumed in this process it may be used in a substoichiometric quantity – potentially improving efficiency and avoiding waste.
