This thesis, consisting of three chapters, describes the development of asymmetric C-P bond formation (including C*-P, C*-P*, and double C*-P) via hydrophosphination reactions activated by palladacycles. This methodology provides the access to a series of tertiary C-stereogenic monophosphines, C- and P-stereogenic monophosphines, and C-stereogenic PCP diphosphines (chiral PCP pincer ligands) in high yields with excellent stereoselectivities.
