- A new efficient and diastereoselective synthesis of multisubstituted isoindolines with two stereogenic centers via sequential Ugi/aza-Michael addition reaction was developed. Ugi-3CR of aldehydes 1, amines 2 and isocyanates 3 in the presence of catalytic amount of H3PO4 produced intermediates 4, which were then transformed to isoindolines 5 with good 1,3-trans diastereoselectivity in the presence of K2CO3 by intramolecular aza-Michael addition. Sequential Ugi-azide and aza-Michael addition reaction of aldehydes 1, amines 2 and trimethylsilyl azide 6 also produced 4-tetrazolyl substituted isoindolines 8 with good 1,3-trans diastereoselectivity in the presence of potassium carbonate.
