The asymmetric synthesis of 3-methylindolizidine-1,2-diol, analog of indolizidine-1,2-diol alkaloids, has been achieved from the chiral 2-cyano-6-oxazolopiperidine synthon (1). The synthesis commenced with 1,2 addition of the anion of 1 on crotonaldehyde leading to 8 with enantioselective formation of the firtst hydroxyl group. Epoxidation of the double bond followed by hydrogenolysis of the benzyl appendage led to the amino epoxides (13). Finally the five membered ring construction was accomplished by employing cyclization of 13.
