Triple catalysis: The title reaction between α-branched aldehydes and allylic alcohols, which generates all-carbon quaternary stereogenic centers, constitutes the first asymmetric Tsuji–Trost-type α-allylation of carbonyl compounds with allylic alcohol (see scheme). This reaction is catalyzed by three different species, [Pd(PPh3)4], the chiral Brønsted acid TRIP, and benzhydryl amine.
