      We have reported a facile, practically appealing, highly   enantioselective Brønsted acid-catalyzed

      a-aminoxylation of enecarbamates. This procedure considerably   extend the substrate scope for the a-aminoxylation reaction to   linear and aromatic ketones, allowing convergent and   stereoselective access to valuable a-hydroxy ketones, b-amino   alcohols, and cis-oxazolidinones in their enantiopure form. This   discovery also provides mechanistic insights into the N/O   selectivity of a-aminoxylation.
