Expert has applied his synthetic organic chemistry background to the development of chiral catalysts enabling efficient asymmetric synthesis for selected reactions of synthetic importance. In recent years, catalytic asymmetric synthesis has been recognized as one of the most valuable tool for efficient access to enantiopure molecules. Asymmetric catalysis in aqueous media in particular is of high current interest because water is a key solvent for environmentally benign chemical synthesis. His results will provide medicinal researchers with new tools for preparing biologically important molecules. Indeed, the practicality of his synthetic strategies will speed up the synthesis of appreciable quantities of natural and unnatural products for biological evaluation, and the preparation of analogues to serve as probes to the study of biological systems and the expedition of drug discovery. He reported the use of bismuth(III) salts susceptible to behave as Lewis acids. This domain is very promising nowadays because the development of efficient catalysts for asymmetric synthesis is a major concern. His previous experience in homogeneous catalysis involving transition metals is a major advantage.
