Abstract:The synthetic utility of the methodology is demonstrated with the synthesis of diastereo-, and enantiomerically pure 2,3,4-trisubstituted gamma-lactams in high yield. In addition, conjugate addition of the allylic organolithium species with N-protected 4-pyridones provides high yields of the corresponding 1,4-addition adduct with high enantiomeric ratios (ers). The reaction is believed to proceed through an N-acyl pyridinium salt formed on reaction of N-protected pyridone with TMSCl. An organolithium species derived from N-Boc-N-( p-Methoxyphenyl)dimethylphenylsilyl-allylamine, stabilized with a silyl group rather than a phenyl, has been successfully employed in this lithiation-conjugate addition sequence. The enantioenriched products that arise on electrophilic substitution with N-protected pyridones are precursors to piperidine alkaloids. Moreover, this reaction has been applied as the key step in the total synthesis of an immediate precursor to the indolizidine alkaloid castanospermine.
