A number of bicyclic chiral sultams were synthesized based on 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions of nitrile oxides and nitrones with prop-1-ene-1,3-sultone. The corresponding N-enoyl sultarns were prepared by acylation. Their relative effectiveness as new chiral auxiliaries in asymmetric synthesis was evaluated for the asymmetric Diels-Alder reactions with cyclopentadiene. Good chemical yield and excellent endo selectivity were observed. The relationship between the structure and their effectiveness in promoting asymmetric induction of the synthetic chiral sultams was investigated. (C) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
