The first example of a catalytic asymmetric vinylogous Povarov reaction is presented. 1-N-Acylamino-1,3-butadienes react selectively at their terminal double bond in the presence of a chiral phosphoric acid catalyst, delivering highly enantioenriched 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines bearing a synthetically versatile enecarbamate group at the 4-position.
