(R,R)-Ph-BPE ligated Cu catalyzes a chemo-, regio-, and enantioselective allylation of ketones with 1,3-dienes in the presence a hydrosilane to provide chiral homoallylic tertiary alcohols under very mild conditions with good functional group tolerance. 1,3-dienes as the latent allylic nucleophiles avoid the the use of stoichiometric quantities of allylmetal reagents.
