The syntheses of new polymer supported chiral pyrrolidine-phosphine ligands; 4VB-PPM-MMA (1) and 4VB-PPM-tBuMA (2) and their application to the asymmetric hydrogenation of keto-pantolactone were described. Thus, 4VB-PPM-MMA-Rh and 4VB- PPM-tBuMA-Rh gave R-(-)-pantolactone in 73.4 and 75.7% optical yield respectively.
