The first chiral Brønsted acid-catalyzed asymmetric cascade allylboration/oxo-Michael reaction between o-formyl chalcones and allylboronate has been successfully discovered, which afforded chiral 1,3-disubstituted 1,3-dihydroisobenzofurans with a yield, diastereoselective ratio (dr) and enantioselective excess (ee) up to 94%, 2.5:1, and 98%, respectively. In addition, 2,3-dienylboronic pinacol ester was also applied into this cascade reaction with good catalytic results.
