Indium complexes of chiral pyridine bis(diphenyloxazoline)-type ligands have been investigated as catalysts for the asymmetric allylation of aldehydes and ketones. Promoted by these chiral catalysts, allyltributylstannane reacted with aldehydes and ketones to afford the corresponding optically active homoallylic alcohols smoothly.
