(1’S,4S)-2-Aryl-4-(1’-hydroxybenzyl)-4,5-dihydrooxazole prepared from (1S,2S)-2-amino-1-phenylpropane-1,3-diol has been found to be a useful chiral auxiliary for the stereoselective synthesis of β-lactams and β-amino acids in the reaction of imine-ester enolate condensation or 1,4-addition of lithium amides to α,β-unsaturated esters.
