The rapid development of enantioselective allylic or propargylic C − H functionalization methods offers great opportunities for introducing functional groups to readily available starting materials in a stereodefined manner. In this dissertation, we synthesized N-heterocyclic molecules from simple alkynes with good regioselectivity utilizing stoichiometric Fe intermediates. The achievement of highly enantioselective allylic functionalization of non-activated alkenes was realized through the synergistic combination of Fe and Ir catalysts. In addition, we systematically investigated the enantioselective propargylic functionalization with Ir catalysis, thereby expanding the scope pf propargylic functionalization. A wide range of alkynes underwent successful propargylic allylation and silylation, enabling the formation of 1,5-dienes, propargylsilanes and allenylsilanes with good enantioselective and stereoselective control.
