Stereoselective Synthesis of 2-Oxyenamides

Authors

Abstract

An improved route for the highly stereoselective synthesis of (Z)-2-oxyenamides is reported. The desired products can be accessed in only three steps from aminoacetaldehyde dimethyl acetal as common, readily available building block in a highly modular fashion. The improved procedure has been applied to the synthesis of various acylated and sufonylated oxyenamides. Mechanistic and theoretical studies provide a conclusive rationale for the observed stereoselectivities.
