In the field of homogeneous catalysis, catalyst properties and reactivities are determined by the nature of the metal applied in combination with the ligands surrounding the metal centre. Traditionally, ligands functioned merely as spectators. However, the role of ligands can be broadened that they are actively involved during catalysis via for instance hydrogen bonding interactions, etc. An example of this is METAMORPhos, a novel ligand type developed at the UvA in 2008. Sander Oldenhof investigates the coordination behaviour and reactivity of METAMORPhos.
