Within this project we propose the use of a catalytic system containing a coordination cage host and a chiral guest. The working hypothesis is that the transmission of chirality from the chiral guest to the achiral cage host can induce enantioselectivity of a catalytic reaction outside of the cage. The host-guest chemistry of these coordination cages will be studied by experimental and computational methods in order to identify the most suitable guests for particular cages.
