A highly regio-, chemo-, diastereo- and enantioselective organocatalytic [4 + 1] annulation of 2-halo-1,3-dicarbonyl compounds with Morita–Baylis–Hillman adducts catalyzed by commercially available, low cost quinidine for the preparation of synthetically unique and medicinally multi-functionalized isoxazoline N-oxides with three stereogenic centers including adjacent quaternary and tertiary stereocenters has been developed. Notably, the unexpected product ethyl 2-((tert-butyldimethylsilyl)oxy)-2-(5,5-diacetyl-3-((methylsulfonyl)oxy)-4-phenylisoxazolidin-3-yl)acetate (8) bearing a quaternary stereocenter and two tertiary stereocenters was obtained from the undocumented 5,5-diacetyl-3-(2-ethoxy-1-hydroxy-2-oxoethyl)-4-phenyl-4,5-dihydroisoxazole 2-oxide (4ba).
