[Co(P1)] is an effective catalyst for asymmetric cyclopropanation with succinimidyl diazoacetate. The Co(II)-catalyzed reaction is suitable for various olefins, providing the desired cyclopropane succinimidyl esters in high yields and excellent diastereo- and enantioselectivity. The resulting enantioenriched cyclopropane succinimidyl esters can serve as convenient synthons for the general synthesis of optically active cyclopropyl carboxamides.
