Enantiomerically enriched tris(boronates): readily accessible conjunctive reagents for asymmetric synthesis.

Abstract

The catalytic enantioselective diboration of vinyl boronate esters furnishes chiral tris(boronates) in a selective fashion. Subsequent deborylative alkylation occurs in a diastereoselective fashion, both for intermolecular and intramolecular processes.
