(Cyclopentadienyl)tris(acetonitrile)ruthenium hexafluorophosphate [CpRu(CH3CN)3][PF6] in combination with pyridine-hydrazone ligands efficiently catalyzes the asymmetric decarboxylative allylic rearrangement of allyl aryl carbonates. Formations of C–O bonds with high regio- and enantioselectivity ratios (up to 95:5 and 98% ee) are obtained. Good stereocontrol of the pseudotetrahedral geometry of the CpRu moiety is achieved by the hydrazone ligand and its “electron-poor” nature is evidenced through the epimerization of hexacoordinated TRISPHAT-N anion.
