Effiziente katalytische Verfahren für asymmetrische konjugierte Additionen von Alkyl- und Arylaluminiumreagentien an nichtaktivierte β-substituierte Cyclopentenone (siehe Schema) werden durch Kupferkomplexe chiraler zweizähniger N-heterocyclischer Carbene vermittelt (z. B. aus 1) und führen zu quartären Kohlenstoffstereozentren.
