An efficient modular method towards the synthesis of a library of polystyrene supported diphosphine ligands by combining solid-phase synthesis with rational ligand design has been developed. These supported ligands, obtained in quantitative yield, were efficiently and effectively screened in Rh-catalysed asymmetric hydrogenation of several benchmark substrates.
