Substituted pyrrolines are available by ring closure initiated by direct nucleophilic attack of stabilized enolates at the nitrogen of oximes activated with a leaving group, in a process which effectively out-competes the more usual Beckmann rearrangement. Subsequent reduction provides diastereoselective access to the corresponding pyrrolidines. This provides a rapid route to saturated heterocyclic systems from readily available precursors.
