Copper-catalyzed γ-selective coupling between propargylic phosphates and alkylboron compounds (alkyl-9-BBN, prepared by hydroboration of alkenes with 9-BBN-H) affords multisubstituted allenes with various functional groups. The reaction of enantioenriched propargylic phosphates to give axially chiral allenes proceeds with excellent point-to-axial chirality transfer with 1,3-anti stereochemistry.
