Isothiourea-catalyzed [2+2] cycloaddition of C(1)-ammonium enolates and N-alkyl isatins
MetadataShow full item record
Enantioselective [2+2] cycloaddition of C(1)-ammonium enolates generated catalytically using the isothiourea HyperBTM with N alkyl isatins gives spirocyclic β-lactones. In situ ring-opening with an amine nucleophile generates isolable highly enantioenriched products in up to 92:8 dr and in >99:1 er.
