In the presence of BF3·OEt2, the reaction of (3R)-5-t-butyldimethylsiloxy-6-methyl-3-phenyl-1H-pyrrolo[1,2-c]oxazole (3) with aliphatic aldehydes in ether occurred stereoselectively to give the corresponding (3R,7aR,1’R)-isomers (4a and 6a) as the major products, while the similar reaction with aromatic aldehydes afforded the (3R,7aR, 1’S)-isomers (7b, 8b, and 9b) predominantly. The product (7b) from the reaction with benzaldehyde was successfully transformed to a lactacystin analogue.
