Abstract The copper-catalyzed conjugate addition of Grignard reagents to 3-substituted cyclic enones allows the formation of all-carbon chiral quaternary centers. We demonstrate in this article that N-heterocyclic carbenes act as efficient chiral ligands for this transformation. High enantioselectivities (up to 96 % ee) could be obtained for a variety of substrates.
