This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


As an advance in hydrofunctionalization, we herein report that alcohols add to 1,3-dienes with high regio- and enantioselectivity. Using a Ni-DuPhos, we access enantioenriched allylic ethers. Through the choice of solvent-free conditions, we control the reversibility of C-O bond formation. This work showcases a rare example of methanol as a reagent in asymmetric synthesis
