INTRODUCTION
The bi-naphthol moiety is a colorless solid. The structure depicts two naphthol rings joined at the respective 1-positions. The presence of two hydroxy groups renders the molecule highly reactive and the product forms a backbone of a variety of value-added chemicals and ligands.

APPLICATIONS
The bi-naphthyl structure serves as an important ligand for asymmetric synthesis in organic chemistry, especially in Diels-Alder reactions, carbonyl addition and reductions.

Some key applications are:

2,2’-bis(diphenylphosphino)-1,1’-binaphthyl (BINAP)
(S)-Binol by resolution of the mother binol
(R)-Binol in the same resolution process
Aluminium Lithium bi(binaphthol) (its (R)-enantiomer)
(S)-Vanol

A very recent but path-breaking application of Binol has been in preparation of one of the Covid-19 vaccines being developed and supplied from India.
