Photoinduced Copper-Catalyzed Asymmetric Acylation of Allylic Phosphates with Acylsilanes

Press release (in Japanese)

We report a visible-light-induced copper-catalyzed highly enantioselective umpolung allylic acylation reaction with acylsilanes as acyl anion equivalents. Triplet-quenching experiments and DFT calculations supported our reaction design, which is…..
