Chiral N-acyloxazolidinones derived from conjugated dienoic acids undergo boron-mediated aldol condensation in good yield and with high regio- and diastereoselectivity to provide a convenient method for introducing a 1,3-diene subunit. The condensation of a homologous triene derivative is also described.
