Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


: A series of 6-substituted 2-benzyl-3-tert-bu-tyl-1,3,2-oxazaphosphorinanes was prepared in racemic and enantiomerically pure form. The diastereoselectivity of alkylation of the derived anions was examined as a function of ring substitution pattern, base, solvent, electrophile, and enantiomeric composition.
