- A diastereoselective mono-allylation reaction at the α-position of symmetric cyclic ketones by using tert-butanesulfinamide as a chiral auxiliary is explored. Excellent yields and high diastereomeric ratios were achieved under palladium(0) catalysis in the presence of a readily available achiral phosphine ligand.
