Five olefins, each possessing an aryl (Ar) group, an aliphatic moiety, and a protected amino group as N-Teoc (-CO2(CH2)2TMS) or N3 at the aliphatic end, were converted to the corresponding epoxides with high ee. The amino group was generated by deprotection of the N-Teoc group with CsF or by Staudinger reaction of the azide group at elevated temperatures, under which the intramolecular epoxide ring-opening with the resulting amino group took place concomitantly to afford the analogues of the Cinchona alkaloids.
