      Abstract:

      We have developed a novel, practical, and enantio- and   diastereoselective domino reaction for the

      synthesis of functionalized THOs by using a simple amine   catalyst. The results disclosed herein demonstrate the ability to   control the regio- and stereochemistry of the reaction for the   synthesis of THOs from acyclic substrates. We anticipate that   a-aminoxylation directed domino reactions will have great   potential in the field of organocatalysis. The reaction, which is   easy to perform, proceeds cleanly with complete stereocontrol and   does not require a change in the reaction conditions or adding   reagents. This discovery is likely to be used in synthetic   applications, especially since the a-aminoxylation reaction can   be combined with existing domino methods.
