Chiral copper(II) coordination polymers 1a-c have been prepared by one-pot synthesis in high yield. Their single-crystal X-ray analysis showed that repeating units are connected to each other by carboxylate linker and copper(II) atoms are pentacoordinated with distorted square-pyramidal geometry for 1a-b and square-planar geometry for 1c. These polymers have catalyzed the kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols by acylation with up to 90% ee ( s = 50).
