N-Tosylhexafluoroacetone imine reacted as a good enophile with ene components to give α,α-bis(trifluoromethyl)homoalIylamine derivatives. Cyclization of the ene reaction products in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid gave α,α-bis(trifluoromethyl)pyrrolidine derivatives, when the δ position of the homoallylamino group was substituted with an aromatic ring, while no reaction occurred, when substituted with an alkyl group.
