A highly stereoselective[2,3]-σ rearrangement of sulfur ylide derived from Cu(I) carbene and allyl/propargyl sulfides (Doyle-Kirmse reaction) is reported. High stereocontrol is achieved by a dual asymmetric induction approach which involves a chiral auxiliary on diazo substrate, and steric bulky ligand of the Cu(I) catalyst. From mechanistic study, we suggest the[2,3]-σ rearrangement process occurs through free sulfur ylide intermediate. The reaction was further applied in kinetic resolution of allyl sulfide with a chiral center.

Key words: diazo compounds, carbene, sigmatropic rearrangement, sulfur ylide, asymmetric synthesis, chiral resolution
