Carboxylic acids are an essential part of the human health system. Unsaturated alkenes have the potential have the potential to become chiral carboxylic acids after undergoing carboxylation. This report will explain how chiral Tin (II) and Zinc catalyst were synthesized for asymmetric carboxylation of unsaturated alkenes into chiral carboxylic acids.Furthermore, this report will explain the synthesis of the ancillary ligands that went through deprotonation to develop the metal catalyst.
