A dual catalyst system: The cooperative function of a hard and soft Lewis acid (La III and Ag I, respectively) in a catalyst system that includes an amide-based ligand 1 is crucial for simultaneous activation of intramolecular 1,3-dicarbonyl and alkyne moieties to afford enantioenriched cyclopentane derivatives (see scheme).
