Pin it down: A highly enantioselective diboration of terminal alkenes with chiral 1 and bis(pinacolato)diboron (B2pin2) was realized. Subsequent oxidation of the diboron adducts with sodium peroxoborate readily gave the corresponding optically active 1,2-diols in high yields and high enantioselectivities.
