A chiral version of the Cp*Ru(COD)Cl complex equipped with an atropchiral cyclopentadienyl (Cpx) ligand enables [2+2]-cycloadditions between bicyclic olefins and alkynes with excellent reactivity and enantioselectivity. A streamlined synthesis of the Cpx ligand by a C–H functionalisation approach is shown. The chloride counterion of the neutral CpxRuII complex is essential for enantioselectivity.
