The stereoselectivity of nitrone cycloaddition with enol ethers (2 and 4) depends upon the nature of the Lewis acid. The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of nitrones (1, 6 and 8) with enol ether (2) under the catalysis of AlMe3 and Et2AlCl proceeded diastereoselectively; whereas nitrone substitution with TBDPS reverses the diastereoselectivity of the cycloaddition. The oxidative ring-opening of isoxazolidines (3 and 9) with the treatment of benzyl bromide results new β-amino acid esters (11, 13 and 15).
