This chapter focuses on the stereo-controlled homologation of chiral boronic esters with chiral lithium carbenoid (lithiation–borylation) as a powerful method for the asymmetric synthesis of many complex molecules. It is highlighted that the potential methodology to create multiple contiguous stereogenic centers on “growing” carbon chains.
