A group of soluble polymer-supported chiral tartrate ligands was prepared by liquid-phase synthesis with ligand diversity strategy. Moderate to excellent chemical yields and enantiomeric excesses were obtained by using soluble polymer-supported tartrate ester in asymmetric oxidation of prochiral sulfides using Ti(O-i-Pr)4/cumyl hydroperoxide, and the workup was greatly simplified. The influence of substituent in chiral tartrate ligands on the enantioselectivities of the reaction was disclosed.
