Stereospecific Overman Rearrangement of Substituted Cyclic Vinyl Bromides: Access to Fully Substituted α-Amino Ketones


A versatile thermal Overman rearrangement of enantioenriched, cyclic allylic alcohols providing tertiary allylic amines has been developed. The vinyl bromide used to control enantioselectivity in a preceding CBS reduction is utilized as a synthetic handle for the preparation of tertiary α-amino ketones and related derivatives in an asymmetric fashion.
