The first asymmetric catalytic alkylation of unmodified ketones with alkyl halides is described. A cinchona-based primary amine catalyst guides both the stereoselectivity and the photo-activation of the substrates. This metal-free approach contributes a rare example of a highly enantioselective photochemical catalytic process.
