Abstract: The reaction of terminal alkenes with trialkylalanes in the presence of chiral (NMI) 2ZrCl2 has been shown to be 70-75% ee for methylalumination and 90-95% ee for ethyl- and higher alkylalumination. It must involve an acyclic bimetallic process. Its scope, limitations, and applications to some natural products syntheses are discussed.
