A new pair of P-stereogenic ligands with multiple chiral centers were synthesized and used in the copper(I)-catalyzed enatioselective [3 + 2] cycloaddition of iminoesters with alkenes. A variety of highly functionalized pyrrolidines were obtained in excellent yield and enatioselectivity. This is the first example of a pair of P-stereogenic ligands working as pseudoenantiomers to tune the enantio- and diastereoselective 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition, and providing a pair of enantiomerically pure pyrrolidines, respectively.
