From pots and pans to hydrometalation: Hydrometalation reactions using boron and zirconium hydrides transform alkenes into useful alkylmetal nucleophiles. These nucleophiles can be employed in the copper-catalyzed 1,4-additions to α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds or allylic substitutions. Important advances have been achieved recently, which enabled also enantioselective versions of these transformations.
