Abstract

A mild and efficient electrochemical alternative to classical base-catalyzed conjugate addition of nitrogen nucleophiles is reported here. The cleavage of the carbamic N . H bond of Evans' chiral auxiliaries can be very efficiently performed by electrolysis under galvanostatic control and the resulting naked anions used for highly, diastereoselective conjugate addition to nitroalkenes. The degree of stereoselectivity was shown to depend on the steric hindrance of the group at the ring C(4) of the starting oxazolidin-2-one.
