This thesis describes the use of heterobimetallic alkyne complexes in asymmetric organic synthetic pathways. Unlike previous protocols in the literature, the source of chiral control is due to the inherent chirality of the heterobimetallic core and not from an external source. A new method for the preparation of Co(CO)3MoCp(CO)2-alkyne complexes has been addressed with a view to a more rapid and cleaner preparation of these complexes, adapting previously known literature methodology. Preparation of diastereomerically-enriched alcohol complexes has also been attempted.
