Asymmetric catalysis is a permanent and highly relevant challenge in synthetic organic chemistry. Recently, the Heck arylation with aryldiazonium salts became part of a small group of asymmetric catalytic transformations employing chiral bidentate N,N-ligands. Nevertheless, this innovation is still a privilege for non-activated alkenes, cyclic or acyclic. Thus, it is our goal to develop this methodology further using cyclic non-symmetric olefins, aiming to control the C-C double bond migration. The desired Heck adducts constitutes concise approaches to densely functionalized building block in a stereoselective fashion. Preliminary results already demonstrated the viability of the proposed system, including good yields and moderate enantioselective in most cases.
