The pot-economical, highly enantioselective synthesis of axially chiral biaryls was developed by using one-pot organocatalyst-mediated domino and aromatization reactions as key steps. The axial information of the precursor, which also has central chirality, was completely inverted in the final biaryls. The inversion of the axial information occurred in the conversion of the central chirality to the axial chirality of an oxidative aromatization step.
