Acyclic 1,2-amido alcohols (6) react efficiently with a slight excess of (diethylamino)sulfur trifluoride (DAST) to afford the corresponding 2-oxazolines (10) in good yields ranging between 57-95%. Even at the low temperature of -78°C, a rapid (<1 h) and stereoselective amide cyclization is observed without formation of acylaziridine by-products. The scope of this cyclization is discussed.
