Despite the importance of P-chiral organophosphorus compounds in asymmetric catalysis, transition metal-catalyzed methods for accessing P-chiral phosphine derivatives are still limited. Herein, a catalytic enantioselective method for the synthesis of P-stereogenic alkenylphosphinates is developed through asymmetric hydrophosphorylation of alkynes. This process is demonstrated for a wide range of racemic phosphinates and leads to diverse P-stereogenic alkenylphosphinates directly.
