- An iodine-catalyzed direct allylation of chiral oxazolidinones with aldehydes and alkenes has been developed. The reaction proceeds, without use of any bases or metals, directly converted the 3-chiral oxazolidinones into N-allylated oxazolidinones. Additionally, the 3-chiral allylamine skeleton was constructed and the diastereomers were isolated by simple column chromatography.
