Ta daa: The title reaction proceeds under essentially neutral reaction conditions at ambient temperature with a taddol-based phosphoramidite ligand L* allowing the creation of indanes with quaternary stereogenic centers in high enantiomeric excess (see scheme; Tf=trifluoromethanesulfonyl, DMAc=dimethylacetamide).
