    A new family of chiral phosphines based on planar-chiral 1,n-dioxa[n]paracyclophane scaffold was created. They were synthesized with excellent enantioselectivity via asymmetric ortho-lithiation using sec-butyllithium and (-)-sparteine. These phosphines were used as chiral ligands in three reactions: Ag-catalyzed allylation of imines, Pd-catalyzed asymmetric Sonogashira coupling of diiodoparacyclophanes, and Pd-catalyzed asymmetric Suzuki-Miyaura coupling of tricarbonyl(η6-ortho-dichlorobenzene)chromium.
