METHOD FOR PRODUCTION OF OPTICALLY ACTIVE EPOXY COMPOUND, AND COMPLEX USED THEREFOR AND PROCESS FOR PRODUCING THE SAME
A complex, and a process for producing the same, represented by any of the following formulae (I), (I'), (II), (II'), (III), (III'), (IV), and (IV'): where: R1s are independently an alkyl group or an aryl group
R2s are independently a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group, or an aryl group
R3s are independently an alkyl group or an aryl group, provided that two R3s are optionally bonded with each other to form a ring
R4s are independently a hydrogen atom, a halogen atom, an alkyl group, an alkoxy group, a nitro group, or a cyano group
and M is TiY2, where Y is Cl or alkoxide or the complex forms a di-[mu]-oxo dimer where Y is a [mu]-oxo ligand.
