Most small chiral molecule catalysts are suffered from a rigid process in both product separation and recovery. Therefore more attention has been drawn to the soluble polymer-supported catalyst which could be easily recycled. In this paper, a new type of reusable chiral binaphthol polymer-supported diethylzinc catalyst was synthesized and applied in the asymmetric epoxidation of (E)-α,β-unsaturated aryl ketones. The scope of this reaction was explored. Various (E)-α,β-aryl ketones could be easily prepared in good yield (up to 88%) and high ee value (up to 94%) via this asymmetric epoxidation process. Ligands were recovered to explore the inductive effect of the reaction. Recovery experiments of this binaphthol polymer-supported diethylzinc catalyst were conducted. The results indicate that the asymmetric induction ability of the reclaimed chiral polymer 1,1'-bi-2-naphthol did not decrease significantly.
