p-Toluenesulfonyl carbamates (2a-d) were prepared starting from allylic alcohols (3), in which the double bond is conjugated with an electron withdrawing group. In the presence of a catalytic amount of DBU, an intramolecular cyclisation occurred, leading to trans-4,5-disubstituted oxazolidin-2-ones (1a-d) with total stereoselection, which can be precursors of syn-4-hydroxy-3-amino acids.
