An improved generation of chiral cationic iridium catalysts for the asymmetric isomerization of primary allylic alcohols is disclosed. The design of these air stable complexes relied on preliminary mechanistic information available and on Charton analyses using two preceding generations of iridium catalysts developed for this highly challenging transformation.
