Description/Abstract

The catalytic enantioselective addition of 2-tert-butyl-4-aryl-1,3-oxazol-5-ones to maleimides is reported. The addition takes place exclusively at the C-4 position of the oxazolone ring, giving access to quaternary amino acid derivatives. The reaction is catalyzed by readily available chiral bases such as (DHQD)2PYR, rendering the final compounds in good yields and with moderate to good diastereo- and enantioselectivities. When the C-4-substituent of the 2-tert-butyl-oxazolone is an alkyl group, the regioisomeric C-2 addition product is also obtained.
