The stereodifferentiating activity of Ziegler-Natta type Ti(IV) catalysts carrying the chiral ligands menthyl or neomenthyl cyclopentadienyl has been investigated in the asymmetric homogeneous catalytic reduction of a prochiral olefin such as 2-phenyl-1-butene, which is hydrogenated with acceptable optical yields to (R)-(-) or (S)-(+)-2-phenyl-1-butane, respectively. The effect on the optical yields of the reaction temperature, of the nature of the chiral cocatalyst or of achiral cocatalysts of different bulk has also been studied.
