Abstract

Herein we have developed the first enantioselective synthesis of 5-substituted-5H-benzoxathiepine-2(3H)-ones. 2-Sulfonylmethyl phenols and thioglycolates were employed as reaction partners in this method. The desired thia Michael products were obtained via bifunctional squaramide catalyzed conjugate addition reaction to in situ generated o-quinone methides and then basic hydrolysis followed by cyclization led to the formation of 5-substituted-5H-benzoxathiepine-2(3H)-ones. Broad scope and moderate to high enantioselectivities were observed for both products.
