Abstract: The cycloaddition of the chiral nitrone IV derived from D-xylose with methyl acrylate proceeded with very good diastereoselectivity for the anti-trans isoxazolidine Va. Its subsequent transformations to novel chiral polyhydroxylated pyrrolidinones and pyrrolidines are described. The results show that the method has potential use in the preparation of pyrrolidinones and pyrrolidines containing carbohydrate residues.
Keywords: chiral nitrones, pyrrolidines, cycloadditions
