Abstract The copper-catalyzed asymmetric allylic alkylation (AAA) is one of the most powerful methods to introduce a simple alkyl group in allylic position. Copper is particularly known to induce a high γ-selectivity stemming from a SN2' process. This feature has been mainly applied to the alkylation of linear prochiral substrates leading to the formation of stereogenic centers. In sharp contrast, the use of racemic substrates has been scarcely studied. We will present here that this range of substrates could be interesting reaction partners leading to the development of new valuable resolution processes.
