For the catalytic enantioselective borohydride reduction, the theoretical simulation of various axial groups in Co complex catalysts predicted that the Co-carbene complexes could be employed as efficient catalysts. The newly designed complexes generated from the Co complex and methyl diazoacetate made it possible to catalyze the enantioselective borohydride reduction in a halogen-free solvent.
