An iron-catalyzed highly Markovnikov-type selective and enantioselective hydrosilylation of terminal aliphatic alkenes with good functional group tolerance provides valuable chiral organosilanes with high ees. Chiral aliphatic alkan-2-ols could be efficiently synthesized via further derivatization of chiral organosilanes without any racemization.
