Piña colato? In the presence of a chiral CuI/bisphosphine complex and B2(pin)2, enone diones undergo diastereo- and enantioselective desymmetrization to deliver highly functionalized bicyclic products. The products can be used as substrates in additional transformations. pin=pinacolato, Cy=cyclohexyl.
