A self-assembled ligand library (SAL XY) affords a wide range of R/S ratios in Rh-catalyzed asymmetric hydroboration (nbd = 2,5norbornadiene, R* is a chiral substituent). Ligand-scaffold optimization reveals “substrate-tailored” ligands that afford high regio- and enantioselectivity for a variety of ortho-substituted styrene derivatives.

Includes article (4 pp.) and supporting information (106 pp.).
