Development of efficient and practical asymmetric catalytic reactions plays a pivotal role for the concise syntheses of chiral drugs. Chiral ligands and catalysts are crucial for the selectivity and reactivity of the catalytic reactions. In this account, the design and development of a series of P-chiral mono- and bis-phosphorus ligands were summarized based on a benzooxaphosphane backbone and their applications in the synthesis of chiral drugs. Beside their P-chirality, these ligands are structurally rigid, sterically bulky, and electron-rich, providing good physical properties and tunabilities. Facilitated by these chiral ligands, a series of efficient and practical reactions including asymmetric hydrogenation, asymmetric cross-coupling, asymmetric cyclization, and asymmetric nucleophilic additions have been developed. The excellent conversions, yields, regioselectivities, enantioselectivities, and broad substrate scope have enabled concise and efficient syntheses of a series of chiral drugs.

Key words: chiral phosphorus ligands, transition metal catalysis, asymmetric synthesis, enantioselectivity, chiral drugs
