A novel enantioselective Pd-catalyzed intermolecular carboetherification of dihydrofurans is reported. The in situ generation of chiral bisphosphine monooxide (BPMO) ligands is crucial and a general catalytic system has been identified based on this approach. It provides access to a variety of fused tetrahydrofurobenzofurans in consistently high yield and enantiomeric excess.
