Highly Enantioselective Hiyama Cross-Coupling via Rh-Catalyzed Allylic Arylation of Racemic Allyl Chlorides

Highly enantioselective Hiyama cross-coupling reactions have been achieved through rhodium(I)-catalyzed dynamic kinetic asymmetric transformations between aryl siloxanes and racemic allyl halides. This process affords valuable enantiomerically enriched allyl arenes and is compatible with heterocyclic allyl chloride electrophiles.
