Stay hydrated: The salen–Co3+ (1) complex is found to efficiently promote the hydration of terminal alkynes to give methyl ketones in the presence of the H2SO4 cocatalyst. In addition, the one-pot transformation of alkynes into chiral alcohols through tandem catalysis of 1 with the ruthenium catalyst 2 is realized in excellent yields and enantioselectivities.
