Prof. Kol Moshe

The research group of Moshe Kol is investigating the synthesis of chelalting ligands and their wrapping tendencies around main-group metals and transition metals to give well-defined complexes. These complexes are investigated mostly in catalysis of stereoselective transformations with emphasis on polymerization reactions. The current research directions include:

Development of catalysts based on group 4 transition metal complexes for stereoselective polymerization of propylene and other alpha-olefins.

Development of various metallic catalysts for stereoselective ring-opening polymerization of lactones, to give environmentally-benign polymers such as poly(lactic acid)

Design of “chiral-at-metal” complexes for asymmetric catalysis

Investigation of polymeryl migration processes in stereoselective polymerization reactions

Investigation of self-organization processes of “chiral-at-metal” complexes.
