- Three-component C–H bond additions across two different coupling partners remain underdeveloped. Herein, we report the first three-component Rhᴵᴵᴵ-catalyzed C–H bond additions to a wide range of dienes and aldehydes. Our method constitutes a complementary access with Ellman's Coᴵᴵᴵ-catalytic system to homoallylic alcohols.
