Highly diastereo- and enantioselective syntheses of 1,5-disubstituted (E)-1,5-anti-pent-2-endiols and (Z)-1,5-syn-pent-2-endiols have been achieved via the one-pot coupling of two different aldehydes with bifunctional γ-boryl-substituted allylborane reagents, which were generated in situ by the hydroboration of allenes with diisopinocampheylborane. The stereospecificity is discussed.
