Asymmetric 1,4-addition of 3-thiopheneboronic acid to α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds proceeded with high enantioselectivity in the presence of 3 mol% (Rh) of [Rh(OH)((S)-binap)]2 in dioxane/H2O (10/1) at 40 °C to give the corresponding optically active β-(3-thienyl) carbonyl compounds of over 94% ee.
