Transmission metal catalysis is a power enabling technology for the sustainable preparation of chemical compounds, given the desired selectivity can be reached. The selectivity of a transition metal catalyst is highly dependent on the ligands coordinated to the catalytic metal centre. Despite insights in various reaction mechanisms and good understanding of the role of the ligands in these reactions, design of a new selective catalyst for a reaction of interest is still highly challenging. In his PhD dissertation, Paweł Dydio uses supramolecular interactions between substrate and catalysts as a new strategy for finding selective catalysts.
