In Chapters 6 and 7, efforts to develop a predictive computational model for imidazolidinone catalyst activity is described based around the experimental results obtained previously in the thesis. The knowledge gained was then used to design structures with the potential to exhibit high turnovers and extremely high levels of stereoselectivity. Expansion of this model to encompass C2-symmetric catalysts was further explored in Chapter 8.
