Asymmetric aldol reactionvia memory of chirality

Author affiliations


Asymmetric aldol reactions of α-amino acid derivatives via memory of chirality were developed. Chiral oxazolidones with contiguous tetra- and trisubstituted chiral centers were obtained in 78–94% ee by the asymmetric aldol reaction followed by intramolecular acylation.
