The synthesis of compounds is a central issue in chemistry and the backbone of chemical and pharmaceutical industry. The assembly of new complex molecules is still a great challenge despite great progress in synthetic method development. Catalysis, the acceleration of a desired reaction by a catalyst, is an important synthesis tool. It also plays a major role in nature: enzymes enable complex reactions under very mild conditions and are therefore an inspiration for chemists developing new catalysts.
