Abstract

Unsaturated amidals 1, derived from allylic alcohols and containing a stereogenic amidal center, undergo amidomercuration with high 1,3-stereoinduction from the amidal center. In substrates derived from secondary allylic alcohols, the influence of the stereogenic amidal center overrides the competing 1,2-stereoinduction from the allylic substituent. Consequently, starting from a single secondary allylic alcohol, the amidal auxiliary enables the selective preparation of either a syn or an anti vicinal aminoalcohol.
