The asymmetric carbon-carbon bond forming reactions such as the Diels-Alder reaction between N-acryloyloxazolidinone and cyclopentadiene and the Mukaiyama-aldol reaction between methylpyruvate and 1-phenyl-1-trimethylsilyloxyethene have been catalysed by heterogeneous copper(II)-bis(oxazoline)-based polymer immobilised ionic liquid phase (PIILP) systems generated from a range of linear and branched ionic polymers. In both reactions selectivity and ee were strongly influenced by the choice of polymer. A comparison of the performance of Cu(II)-bis(oxazoline)-PIILP catalyst against analogous supported ionic liquid phase (SILP) heterogeneous catalysts as well as their homogeneous counterparts has been undertaken and their relative merits evaluated.
