The combination of a chiral Co complex and a photocatalyst mediates a highly regio- and enantioselective reductive coupling of internal alkynes with aldehydes to provide enantioenriched allylic alcohols in excellent regio-, stereo-, and enantioselectivity. The method offers mild reaction conditions, broad substrate scope, and good functional group compatibility.
