Direct addition of a chiral N-azidoacetyl thiazolidinethione to a variety of dialkyl acetals catalyzed by a commercially available and structurally simple nickel(II) complex gives access in good yields and a highly stereocontrolled manner to anti-β-alkoxy-α-azido carboxylic derivatives which, in turn, can be easily converted into a wide array of enantiomerically pure compounds.

Catalytic enantioselective synthesis of α-chiral azides
α-Chiral azides represent a special subclass of chiral amines, which not only widely exist in bioactive compounds but also play a significant role as a building block in a variety of value-added
Direct and Asymmetric Nickel(II)-Catalyzed Construction of Carbon-Carbon Bonds from N-Acyl Thiazinanethiones.
A wide array of new N-acyl thiazinanethiones are employed in a number of direct and enantioselective carbon-carbon-bond-forming reactions catalyzed by nickel(II) complexes, which indicates that the reactions proceed through an open transition state in a SN1-like mechanism.
