The discovery that palladacycles are efficient catalysts for the allylic imidate rearrangement has resulted in the successful application of several such complexes to this reaction based on planar chiral iron and cobalt containing metallocenes. These palladacycles enable the efficient and highly enantioselective synthesis of a wide variety of protected allylic amines, which are valuable building blocks for use in asymmetric synthesis.
