Catalytic asymmetric hydrofunctionalization of alkene is an important research field, which enables efficient construction of chiral molecules from readily available starting materials. Asymmetric hydrofunctionalization of multiple substituted alkenes represents a significant challenge to organic chemists because this process involves the simutaneous control of regio-, diastereo-, and enantio-selectivities. The key to solve this challenge is to identify novel catalyst systems to exert powerful regio- and stereo-control. Recently, by taking advantage of substrate-directed strategy, we have developed a number of alkene functionalization methods with excellent regio-, diastereo-, and enantio-selectivities. In particular, we focus on catalytic asymmetric hydroalkynylation of alkenes as a model transformation to analyze the factors that control the selectivity.

Key words: alkene functionalization, asymmetric catalysis, selectivity, substrate-directed strategy, transition metal catalysis
