Licensing Agreement

Significance of Patent #31: This patent describes the synthesis and application of our chiral diNHC ligands for enantioselective catalysis. These are the first ligands of their type to appear in the marketplace. This technology was licensed to Strem Chemicals Inc., in which they agree to market the Veige chiral diNHC ligands globally. This partnership continues and the vision is that these ligands will one day become as popular and useful as traditional chiral diphosphines.
