Enantioselective total syntheses of pseudopteroxazole (1) and ileabethoxazole (2) are presented. The two original stereocenters were constructed in excellent enantioselectivity and good diastereoselectivity through Carreira's asymmetric dual catalytic allylation, which shows potential for accessing diastereoisomers at C2 and C3 of 1 and 2. Cationic cyclizations of 13 and 24 demonstrated an effective pathway for the construction of the opposite configurations at C1 in 1 and 2. Additionally, an… Expand

Different Strategies for Designing Dual-Catalytic Enantioselective Processes: From Fully Cooperative to Non-cooperative Systems.
Progress achieved thus far is likely the preamble to the future development of non-orthogonal multi-catalytic processes (i.e., transformations involving several catalysts that are not inherently cooperative) where the order with which each catalyst enters the fray will demand additional innovative strategies.
