Abstract

Good‐ee! The first one‐pot olefin cyclopropanation that gives high ee is reported. The optimized catalyst is the 4‐Br‐substituted chiral paddle‐wheel tetracarboxylatodirhodium(II) complex based on N‐naphthaloyl‐(S)‐tert‐leucinate. X‐ray structural analysis of the parent catalyst reveals a square chiral crown cavity shrouding the axial coordination site.
