Iridium-chiral diphosphine complex catalyzes an enantioselective intramolecular Pauson-Khand-type reaction to give various chiral bicyclic cyclopentenones. The enantioselective reaction proceeds more smoothly and enantioselectively under a lower partial pressure of carbon monoxide. Moreover, aldehyde can be used as a CO source in the enantioselective carbonylative coupling.
