A series of proline-derived hydrazines has been prepared and the reactions of their corresponding hydrazones with organocerium reagents have been examined. All of the hydrazones underwent smooth additions but the diastereoselectivity varied with the nature of the side chain. The (S)-1-anuno-2-(2-methoxyethoxymethyl)pyrrolidine (SAMEMP) gave the highest selectrvities overall for various nucleophiles.
