Highly stereoselective [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement of sulfur ylide generated through Cu(I) carbene and sulfides.

A highly stereoselective [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement of sulfur ylide generated through Cu(I) carbene and allyl and propargyl sulfides by a double asymmetric induction approach that combines a chiral camphor sultam auxiliary and Cu(I) catalyst with chiral or achiral diimine ligands has been developed.
