1-(2-Hydroxynathalen-1-yl)naphthalene-2-ol (BINOL) and its derivatives have been used widely as chiral ligands in asymmetric catalysis. Recently, we have found that the simple axial chiral monoalkylated BINOLs could be converted into synthetically useful and enantiomerically pure 1,1'-binaphthalene-2-α-arylmethanol-2'-ols (Ar-BINMOLs) with axial and sp3-central chirality through the axial-to-central chirality transfer of [1,2]-Wittig rearrangement. At present, the catalytic application of Ar-BINMOLs in asymmetric catalysis has been revealed by our and Yus's groups. In this account, the progress in the field of BINOL and its derivatives will also be reported concisely in the article, and the Ar-BINMOLs and its derivatives as new chiral ligands for application in asymmetric catalysis would be summarized detailedly.
