Highly enantioselective copper-catalyzed propargylic amination to access N-tethered 1,6-enynes.

RSC Adv. 2020, 10, 38478.

 A highly enantioselective copper-catalyzed propargylic amination starting from benzylic allylic amines has been developed with a new chiral N,N,P ligand, providing a series of N-tethered 1,6-enynes in good to excellent yields with excellent enantioselectivities.
