Adding value: A four-step synthesis of enantioenriched carbazolone and indolone derivatives has been developed using an enantioselective Pd-catalyzed decarboxylative allylation. The scope of this reaction is broad, and the materials are suited for natural product synthesis, shown with the completion of a formal synthesis of (+)-kopsihainanine (see scheme).
