The Cu(I) complex of (1R,3R)-bis(diphenylphosphinoxy)-1,3-diphenylpropane (BDPODP) has been prepared and used for the transfer of the ligand to Rh(I). The Rh(I) complexes of this new phosphinite obtained by this method act as efficient asymmetric homogeneous hydrogenation catalysts for (Z)-α-(acylamino)-cinnamic acids.
