Only chiral anions do the job! Optically active gold complexes derived from substituted binol hydrogen phosphate catalyze the desymmetrizing cyclization of 1,4-diynamides. This reaction provides access to synthetically useful, chiral methylene pyrrolidines with an all-carbon-substituted quaternary stereocenter.
