AgF and (R)-DIFLUORPHOS predominantly formed a 1:1 complex that provided high enantioselectivity for the asymmetric Sakurai-Hosomi allylation of various simple ketones. Only 1,2-adducts were obtained from both acyclic and cyclic conjugate ketones. Highly diastereo- and enantioselective reactions with E- or Z-crotyltrimethoxysilane and racemic allylsilanes are described.
