Alkenyl boronates add to Ir(π-allyl) intermediates with high enantioselectivity. A 1,2-metalate shift forms a second C-C bond and sets a 1,3-stereochemical relationship. The three-component coupling provides tertiary boronic esters that can undergo multiple additional functionalizations. An extension to trisubstituted olefins sets three contiguous stereocenters.
