An indene-based thiazolidinethione chiral auxiliary was prepared in two steps from trans-1-amino-2-indanol. Chlorotitanium enolates of this chiral auxiliary delivered excellent diastereoselectivities in propionate and acetate aldol additions. The chiral auxiliary was easily removed to deliver several valuable functionalities.
The syntheses of simplactones (3R,4S)-1 and (3R,4R)-2 were achieved in 5 steps from N-acyl thiazolidinethione chiral auxiliaries. The syntheses feature a double diastereoselective acetate aldol reaction solely controlled by the chirality of the auxiliary. Highly diastereoselective aldol reactions with s-trioxane were also achieved with N-acyl(More)
