Abstract

A new axially chiral N-acryl-N-allyl-o-tert-butylanilide with high optical purity (96-97 %ee) was prepared in good yield from (S)-O-acetyl lactic acid and N-allyl o-t-butylaniline. Iodine mediated Diels-Alder reaction of the axially chiral N-acryl anilide with cyclopentadiene or isoprene proceeded with high diastereoselectivity.
