Enantiopure (1Z,3E)-1-sulfinyl dienes bearing an o-dithianylphenyl group can be prepared and complexed with (bda)Fe(CO) 3 to afford the corresponding sulfinyl diene iron(0) tricarbonyl complexes. This diastereoselective complexation introduces planar and axial chirality simultaneously, with a high degree of facial selectivity as well as atropselectivity. Dynamic kinetic resolution is likely to be the origin of the atropselectivity.
