The first catalytic, enantioselective carbosulfenylation of alkenes with an aromatic nucleophile is described, using a BINAM-based selenophosphoramide catalyst. E-Alkyl- and aryl-substituted alkenes afforded tetrahydronaphthalenes with complete diastereospecificity, and generally high enantiomeric ratios.
