A Pt-catalyzed enantioselective addition of bis(pinacolato)diboron to various terminal alkenes occurs in the presence of a readily available chiral phosphonite ligand. While oxidation of the intermediate 1,2-bis(boronate) ester provides a chiral 1,2-diol as the reaction product, homologation/oxidation furnishes a chiral 1,4-diol.

Additional analytical data have revealed that the platinum complex used for this study is more accurately represented by the formula Pt(dba)3 rather than Pt2(dba)3. A ligand loading of 2 eq. relative to platinum results in optimal selectivity and yield.
