Atroposelective synthesis of axially chiral biaryls by palladium-catalyzed C−H olefination, using tert-leucine as an inexpensive, catalytic, and transient chiral auxiliary, has been realized. This strategy provides a highly efficient and straightforward access to a broad range of enantioenriched biaryls in good yields (up to 98 %) with excellent enantioselectivities (95 to >99 % ee). Kinetic resolution of trisubstituted biaryls bearing sterically more demanding substituents is also operative, thus furnishing the optically active olefinated products with excellent selectivity (95 to >99 % ee, s-factor up to 600). No attachements: The title reaction employs tert-leucine as a transient chiral auxiliary and provides efficient access to enantioenriched biaryls in good yields (up to 98 %) with excellent enantioselectivities (up to >99 % ee). Kinetic resolution of trisubstituted biaryls bearing sterically more demanding substituents is also operative, thus furnishing the optically active olefinated products with excellent selectivity (up to >99 % ee, s-factor up to 600).
