N,O-Heterocycles as synthetic intermediates
Abstract: Hydroxylamines can be cyclized under various conditions according to the nature of the unsaturation in the N-substituent. Both isoxazolidines and tetrahydrooxazines can be formed with good synthetic control. The choice of the appropriate cyclization reaction leads to syntheses of the natural products sedamine and monomorine. The related N,O-acetals are shown to undergo efficient ring-opening under Sakurai conditions.
