Thank you for using JustAnswer!

The first attempt to artificially inseminate a chimpanzee with a human sperm was in the 1920s by Ilya Ivanov. All attempts failed and have not publicly been attempted again. Science has now determined there are many reasons why such experiments will not prove successful. I have attached a section of an article from the Institute for Creation Research for your review:

"In the end, the research failed and has not been attempted again, at least publicly. Today we know it will not be successful for many reasons, and Professor Ivanov's attempts are, for this reason, a major embarrassment to science. One problem is humans have 46 chromosomes--apes 48--and for this reason the chromosomes will not pair up properly even if a zygote is formed. Another problem is a conservatively estimated 40 million base pair differences exist between humans and our putative closest evolutionary relatives, the chimps. These experiments are the result of evolutionary thinking and they failed because their basic premise is false."
