More electron donating, more rigid: A new highly electron-donating P-stereogenic bisphospholane ligand (ZhangPhos) was synthesized in a practical and highly enantioselective manner from a commercially available chiral source. Better or comparable enantioselectivities and reactivities than TangPhos were achieved in rhodium-catalyzed hydrogenation of various functionalized olefins (see scheme; nbd=3,5-norbornadiene).
