dc.description.abstractThe scope and limitations of a tandem N-allylation/[2,3]-rearrangementprotocol are investigated through the incorporation of a variety of functionalgroups within an allylic phosphate precursor. This method uses readilyaccessible N,N-dimethylglycine aryl esters and functionalizedallylic phosphates, forming quaternary ammonium salts in situ in the presence of a palladium catalyst. Subsequentenantioselective [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement, promoted by the chiralisothiourea tetramisole, generates α-amino acid derivatives with two contiguousstereocenters. The incorporation of electron withdrawing ester and amide groupsgave the best results, furnishing the desired products in moderate to goodyields (29-70%), with low diastereocontrol (typically 60:40 dr) but highenantioselectivity (up to 90:10 er). These results indicate that substrate-catalystinteractions in the proposed transition state are sensitive to the substitutionpattern of the substrates.
