A bisphosphine/copper catalyst was used for the asymmetric hydroboration of 1,8-naphthalenediaminatoboryl (Bdan) substituted alkenes (see scheme; pin=pinacolato). Simple alkyl-substituted borylalkenes and styrene derivatives were hydroborated with high regio- and enantioselectivity. The electronic and steric properties of the Bdan group significantly affected the reactivity and regioselectivity of hydroboration.
