A Pd(OAc)2-SEGPHOS combination catalyzes the first enantioseiective aryiative cyclization of allenyl aldehydes with aryiboronic acids to provide c/s-fused fiveand six-membered cyclic homoallylic alcohols. The excellent diastereoand enantioselectivity and the fact that the reaction proceeds at room temperature in the absence of any additives make the process highly practical.
