Figure 3

Enantiomeric excess (ee) vs. conversion plots for the kinetic resolution of scalemic (S)-1-phenylethanol and (R)-1-phenylethanol in the presence of catalysts 1 (a) and 2 (b). Enantiomeric ratio (er: [S]/[R] for (S)-substrate or [R]/[S] for (R)-substrate) vs. conversion plots for the kinetic resolution of scalemic (S)-1-phenylethanol and (R)-1-phenylethanol in the presence of achiral catalysts 1 (c) and 2 (d). Dots represent experimental data; solid lines are theoretical curves with parameters and given in Table 1. Curve numbers correspond to the numbers of entries in Table 1.
