Efficient: A copper-catalyzed enantioselective intramolecular insertion of carbenoids into phenolic O[BOND]H bonds has been developed. This method can be used for the synthesis of the title compounds in high yields and excellent enantioselectivities under mild and neutral conditions (see scheme). NaBArF=sodium tetrakis[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]borate.
