The X-ray structural analyses of homoleptic Rh(II) complexes made of enantiopure (R)-1,1’-binaphthyl and (R)-(5,5’,6,6’,7,7’,8,8’-octahydro)-binaphthyl phosphate ligands are for the first time presented. The possibility to introduce halogen atoms at the 3,3’-positions is also reported. The isolated dirhodium complexes were further tested as catalysts (1 mol %) in enantioselective cyclopropanations and Si-H insertion reactions.
