Abstract

The highly diastereoselective anti-aminohydroxylation of α,β-unsaturated esters, viaconjugate addition of lithium (S)-N-benzyl-N-(α-methylbenzyl)amide and subsequent in situ enolate oxidation with (+)-(camphorsulfonyl)oxaziridine, has been used as the key step in the asymmetric synthesis of N,O-diacetyl xestoaminol C (41% yield over 8 steps), N,O,O-triacetyl sphinganine (30% yield over 8 steps) and N,O,O-triacetyl sphingosine (30% yield over 7 steps).
