Replacement of the 2-keto group of readily available di(endo-3-camphoryl) diselenide with oxime or O-benzoyloxime substituents, followed by conversion into the corresponding selenenyl triflates, produced highly effective chiral selenium electrophiles for the asymmetric oxyselenenylation of alkenes in the presence of methanol.
