    (Figure Presented) A whole lot o' metal: An efficient copper-catalyzed asymmetric conjugate addition was achieved using a binol-derived ligand. The catalytic system has a turnover number of 2000, and the excellent cata-lytic performance could be attributed to the generation of a multinuclear complex such as 1. binol = 2, 2'-dihydroxy-l, 1'-binaphthyl.
