Multinuclear Cu/Zn complex-catalyzed efficient asymmetric conjugate addition of organozinc reagents to acyclic and cyclic enones has been developed in the presence of a wide variety of regioisomeric chiral diols bearing phosphorus moieties as ligands. The regioisomeric SPINOL-PHOS ligands based on a SPINOL architecture showed an unexpected inversion of stereoselectivity.
