Optically active N-(diphenylphosphinyl)ferrocenylamines with good to high e.e.'s were obtained by the enantioselective addition of dialkylzincs to ferrocenyl-diphenylphosphinylimine in the presence of chiral β-aminoalcohols. The subsequent hydrolysis afforded a chiral ferrocenylamine without racemization.
