The Juliá-Colonna asymmetric epoxidation reaction of substituted benzalacetophenone afforded the corresponding epoxide with high yield and high enantioselectivity, catalyzed by the specified length of poly-L-leucine (chain length n > 15). Poly-L-leucine catalysts have been prepared by the polymerization reaction of L-leucine-NCA with initiators (BnONa, n-BuNH2, H2O) and characterized by the MALDI-TOF Mass and IR analysis.
