Abstract

A cationic ruthenium(II) complex catalyzes double-bond transposition of 1,1-di(boryl)alk-3-enes to generate in situ 1,1-di(boryl)alk-2-enes, which then undergo chiral phosphoric acid catalyzed allylation of aldehydes producing homoallylic alcohols with a (Z)-vinylboronate moiety. 1,2-Anti stereochemistry is installed in an enantioselective manner. The (Z)-geometry forged in the products allows their isolation in a form of 1,2-oxaborinan-3-enes, upon which further synthetic transformations are operated.
