[CpRu(CH3CN)3][PF6] and diimine ligands catalyze together the decomposition of α-diazoacetoacetates leading to O-H insertion and condensation reactions. In comparison with Rh(II) and Cu(I) complexes, the CpRu catalysts produce rapid and often more selective reactions. Promising enantioselectivities are obtained in dioxole syntheses.
