An asymmetric allylic substitution of simple allylic ethers with arylboronic acids in the presence of a rhodium(I)/(R)-DTBM-SEGPHOS catalyst has been developed. The reactions proceeded smoothly at room temperature to give the corresponding branch products with excellent regioselectivities and good to excellent enantioselectivities.
