The rhodium-catalyzed enantioselective desymmetrization of symmetric γ,δ-unsaturated amides via carbonyl-directed catalytic asymmetric hydroboration (directed CAHB) affords chiral secondary organoboronates with up to 98% ee. The chiral γ-borylated products undergo palladium-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling via the trifluoroborate salt with stereoretention.
